Hard core bosons in a large class of one or two dimensional flat band systems have an upper critical density, below which the ground states can be described completely. At the critical density, the ground states are Wigner crystals. If one adds a particle to the system at the critical density, the ground state and the low lying multi particle states of the system can be described as a Wigner crystal with an additional pair of particles. The energy band for the pair is separated from the rest of… 

Localised Pair Formation in Bosonic Flat-Band Hubbard Models

Flat-band systems are ideal model systems to study strong correlations. In a large class of one or two dimensional bosonic systems with a lowest flat-band it has been shown that at a critical density

Universal d=1 flat band generator from compact localized states

The band structure of some translationally invariant lattice Hamiltonians contains strictly dispersionless flatbands(FB). These are induced by destructive interference, and typically host compact

Dimers, trimers, tetramers, and other multimers in a multiband Bose-Hubbard model

We study the bound states of N identical bosons that are described by a multiband Bose-Hubbard model with generic hoppings and an attractive onsite interaction. Using a variational approach, we first

Rhombi-chain Bose-Hubbard model: Geometric frustration and interactions

We explore the effects of geometric frustration within a one-dimensional Bose-Hubbard model using a chain of rhombi subject to a magnetic flux. The competition of tunnelling, self-interaction and

Interacting bosons in two-dimensional flat band systems

The Hubbard model of bosons on two dimensional lattices with a lowest flat band is discussed. In these systems there is a critical density, where the ground state is known exactly and can be

Low-energy behavior of strongly interacting bosons on a flat-band lattice above the critical filling factor

Bosons interacting repulsively on a lattice with a flat lowest band energy dispersion may, at sufficiently small filling factors, enter into a Wigner-crystal-like phase. This phase is a consequence

Phase diagram and pair Tomonaga-Luttinger liquid in a Bose-Hubbard model with flat bands

To explore superfluidity in flat-band systems, we consider a Bose-Hubbard model on a cross-linked ladder with $\pi$ flux, which has a flat band with a gap between the other band for noninteracting

Haldane phase on the sawtooth lattice: Edge states, entanglement spectrum, and the flat band

Using density matrix renormalization group numerical calculations, we study the phase diagram of the half filled Bose-Hubbard system in the sawtooth lattice with strong frustration in the kinetic

Geometry induced pair condensation

We study a one-dimensional model of interacting bosons on a lattice with two flat bands. Regular condensation is suppressed due to the absence of a well defined minimum in the single particle

Bose condensation in flat bands

We derive effective Hamiltonians for lattice bosons with strong geometrical frustration of the kinetic energy by projecting the interactions on the flat lowest Bloch band. Specifically, we consider

Boson localization and the superfluid-insulator transition.

It is argued that the superfluid-insulator transition in the presence of disorder may have an upper critical dimension dc which is infinite, but a perturbative renormalization-group calculation wherein the critical exponents have mean-field values for weak disorder above d=4 is also discussed.

Repulsively bound atom pairs in an optical lattice

These results exemplify the strong correspondence between the optical lattice physics of ultracold bosonic atoms and the Bose–Hubbard model—a link that is vital for future applications of these systems to the study of strongly correlated condensed matter and to quantum information.

Exciton–polariton condensates with flat bands in a two-dimensional kagome lattice

Microcavity exciton–polariton condensates, as coherent matter waves, have provided a great opportunity to investigate hydrodynamic vortex properties, superfluidity and low-energy quantum state

Quantum phase transition from a superfluid to a Mott insulator in a gas of ultracold atoms

This work observes a quantum phase transition in a Bose–Einstein condensate with repulsive interactions, held in a three-dimensional optical lattice potential, and can induce reversible changes between the two ground states of the system.
