Although classifying topological quantum phases have attracted great interests, the absence of local order parameter generically makes it challenging to detect a topological phase transition from experimental data. Recent advances in machine learning algorithms enable physicists to analyze experimental data with unprecedented high sensitivities, and identify quantum phases even in the presence of unavoidable noises. Here, we report a successful identification of topological phase transitions…

Classifying snapshots of the doped Hubbard model with machine learning

This work compares the data from an experimental realization of the two-dimensional Fermi-Hubbard model to two theoretical approaches: a doped quantum spin liquid state of resonating valence bond type, and the geometric string theory, describing a state with hidden spin order.

Unsupervised machine learning of topological phase transitions from experimental data

This work applies different unsupervised machine learning techniques, including anomaly detection and influence functions, to experimental data from ultracold atoms, and obtains the topological phase diagram of the Haldane model in a completely unbiased fashion.

Machine Learning Topological Invariants with Neural Networks

After training with Hamiltonians of one-dimensional insulators with chiral symmetry, the neural network can predict their topological winding numbers with nearly 100% accuracy, even for Hamiltonians with larger winding numbers that are not included in the training data.

Interpreting machine learning of topological quantum phase transitions

There has been growing excitement over the possibility of employing artificial neural networks (ANNs) to gain new theoretical insight into the physics of quantum many-body problems.

Heuristic machinery for thermodynamic studies of SU(N) fermions with neural networks

This work introduces a heuristic machinery to guide the thermodynamic studies in the density profile of ultracold fermions interacting within SU(N) spin symmetry prepared in a quantum simulator, and investigates how the accuracy depends on various less-pronounced effects with filtered experimental images.

Correlator convolutional neural networks as an interpretable architecture for image-like quantum matter data

A set of nonlinearities for use in a neural network architecture that discovers features in the data which are directly interpretable in terms of physical observables that pave the way for new physical insights from machine learning studies of experimental and numerical data.

Observation of symmetry-protected topological band with ultracold fermions

This work reports the observation for ultracold atoms of a noninteracting SPT band in a one-dimensional optical lattice and studies quench dynamics between topologically distinct regimes, revealing two fundamental types of spin-relaxation dynamics related to bulk topology.

Machine learning in electronic-quantum-matter imaging experiments

These ANNs are used to analyse an archive of experimentally derived EQM image arrays from carrier-doped copper oxide Mott insulators, discovering the existence of a lattice-commensurate, four-unit-cell periodic, translational-symmetry-breaking EQM state and determining that this state is unidirectional.

Observation of nodal-line semimetal with ultracold fermions in an optical lattice

The observation of topological phases beyond two dimensions, as widely reported in solid-state systems1,2, has been an open challenge for ultracold atoms. Although many theoretical schemes have been

It is demonstrated how influence functions can unravel the black box of NN when trained to predict the phases of the one-dimensional extended spinless Fermi–Hubbard model at half-filling.
