Spin-charge separation in atomic chains Strongly interacting electrons lined up along a string can experience the so-called spin-charge separation, where the electrons “split” into effective carriers of spin and charge, which then move independently. This phenomenon has been observed, somewhat indirectly, in solids. Hilker et al. show spin-charge separation in a direct way by using a one-dimensional (1D) array of cold atoms, playing the role of electrons, whose degrees of freedom of spin and…

Direct observation of incommensurate spin correlations in doped and spin-imbalanced Hubbard chains confirms two fundamental predictions for Luttinger liquids and shows that such correlations are suppressed by interchain coupling.

Short-range antiferromagnetic correlations are known to open a spin gap in the repulsive Hubbard model on ladders with \boldsymbol{M}𝐌 legs, when \boldsymbol{M}𝐌 is even. We show that the spin gap

The opening of a charge gap driven by interaction is a fingerprint of the transition to a Mott insulating phase. In strongly correlated low-dimensional quantum systems, it can be associated to the

It is shown that the imaging techniques in atomic physics enable one to visualize the highly unusual behavior of a moving hole, for which the motion of the hole generates a string, which, in turn, hinders its movement.


Spin- and density-resolved microscopy of antiferromagnetic correlations in Fermi-Hubbard chains
This work reports on the direct, single-site resolved detection of antiferromagnetic correlations extending up to three sites in spin-1/2 Hubbard chains, which requires entropies per particle well below s* = ln(2).

The site-resolved observation of charge and spin correlations in the two-dimensional (2D) Fermi-Hubbard model realized with ultracold atoms shows strong bunching of doublons and holes, in agreement with numerical calculations.

Preroughening transitions in crystal surfaces and valence-bond phases in quantum spin chains.
It is shown that disordered flat phases in crystal surfaces are equivalent to valence-bond-type phases in integer and half-integer spin quantum chains, and that these phases differ only in the mathematical formulation of broken symmetry in the spin representation.
Probing Spin-Charge Separation in a Tomonaga-Luttinger Liquid
An electrostatically gated 1D system is fabricated in which the spin-charge separation persists even beyond the low-energy regime where the TLL approximation should hold and also the predicted power-law suppression of tunneling into the1D system.

Abstract It is argued that the electron stripes as found in correlated oxides have to do with an unrecognized form of order. The manifestation of this order is the robust property that the charge
