We study fermionic ladders with identical disorder along the leg direction. Following recent experiments we focus, in particular, on how an initial occupation imbalance evolves in time. By considering different initial states and different ladder geometries we conclude that in generic cases interchain coupling leads to a destruction of the imbalance over time, both for Anderson and for many-body localized systems. 

Many-body localization with synthetic gauge fields in disordered Hubbard chains

We analyze the localization properties of the disordered Hubbard model in the presence of a synthetic magnetic field. An analysis of level spacing ratios shows a clear transition from ergodic to

Localization properties of a two-channel 3D Anderson model

It is found that moderate hopping pushes down the critical disorder strength for the disordered channel throughout the entire spectrum compared to the usual phase diagram for the 3D Anderson model.

Slow Many-Body Delocalization beyond One Dimension.

From the freezing of this decay, the critical disorder W_{c}(L,d) is inferred as a function of length L and width d, which is consistent with the avalanche picture of the many-body localization transition.

Logarithmic entanglement growth in two-dimensional disordered fermionic systems

We investigate the growth of the entanglement entropy $S_{\textrm{ent}}$ following global quenches in two-dimensional free fermion models with potential and bond disorder. For the potential disorder

Exact Localized and Ballistic Eigenstates in Disordered Chaotic Spin Ladders and the Fermi-Hubbard Model.

It is demonstrated the existence of exact atypical many-body eigenstates in a class of disordered, interacting one-dimensional quantum systems that includes the Fermi-Hubbard model as a special case, and comment on the robustness of their properties.

Entanglement dynamics in the three-dimensional Anderson model

We numerically study the entanglement dynamics of free fermions on a cubic lattice with potential disorder following a quantum quench. We focus, in particular, on the metal-insulator transition at a
