We consider a finite-size periodically driven quantum system of coupled kicked rotors which exhibits two distinct regimes in parameter space: a dynamically-localized one with kinetic-energy saturation in time and a chaotic one with unbounded energy absorption (dynamical delocalization). We provide numerical evidence that the kinetic energy grows subdiffusively in time in a parameter region close to the boundary of the chaotic dynamically-delocalized regime. We map the different regimes of the… 

Chaos and subdiffusion in infinite-range coupled quantum kicked rotors

We map the infinite-range coupled quantum kicked rotors over a infinite-range coupled interacting bosonic model. In this way we can apply exact diagonalization up to quite large system sizes and

Many-body dynamical delocalization in a kicked one-dimensional ultracold gas

Contrary to a driven classical system that exhibits chaotic behaviour and diffusive energy growth, a kicked quantum system can exhibit the emergence of dynamical localization, which limits energy

Observation of Many-body Dynamical Delocalization in a Kicked Ultracold Gas

Contrary to a driven classical system that exhibits chaos phenomena and diffusive energy growth, a driven quantum system can exhibit dynamical localization that features energy saturation. However,

Dynamical many-body delocalization transition of a Tonks gas in a quasi-periodic driving potential

The quantum kicked rotor is well-known for displaying dynamical (Anderson) localization. It has recently been shown that a periodically kicked Tonks gas will always localize and converge to a finite

Extended nonergodic regime and spin subdiffusion in disordered SU(2)-symmetric Floquet systems

We explore thermalization and quantum dynamics in a one-dimensional disordered SU(2)-symmetric Floquet model, where a many-body localized phase is prohibited by the non-abelian symmetry. Despite the

Low-energy prethermal phase and crossover to thermalization in nonlinear kicked rotors

In the presence of interactions, periodically-driven quantum systems generically thermalize to an infinite-temperature state. Recently, however, it was shown that in random kicked rotors with local

Effective thermalization of a many-body dynamically localized Bose gas

Dynamical localization is the analog of Anderson localization in momentum space, where the system’s energy saturates and the single-particle wave-functions are exponentially localized in momentum

Nonergodic behavior of the clean Bose-Hubbard chain

We study ergodicity breaking in the clean Bose-Hubbard chain for small hopping strength. We see the clear existence of a non-ergodic regime by means of indicators as the half-chain entanglement

Quasilocalization dynamics in a Fibonacci quantum rotor

We analyze the dynamics of a quantum kicked rotor (QKR) driven with a binary Fibonacci sequence of two distinct drive amplitudes. While the dynamics at low drive frequencies is found to be diffusive,

Observability of fidelity decay at the Lyapunov rate in few-qubit quantum simulations

In certain regimes, the fidelity of quantum states will decay at a rate set by the classical Lyapunov exponent. This serves both as one of the most important examples of the quantum-classical



From localization to anomalous diffusion in the dynamics of coupled kicked rotors.

The results show that quantum mechanics can deeply alter the regularity or ergodicity properties of a many-body-driven system.

Dynamical localization of coupled relativistic kicked rotors

A periodically driven rotor is a prototypical model that exhibits a transition to chaos in the classical regime and dynamical localization (related to Anderson localization) in the quantum regime. In

Quantum Localization for Two Coupled Kicked Rotors

We study a system of two coupled kicked rotors, both classically and quantum mechanically, for a wide range of coupling parameters. This was motivated by two published reports, one of which reported

Anomalous thermalization and transport in disordered interacting Floquet systems

Local observables in generic periodically driven closed quantum systems are known to relax to values described by periodic infinite temperature ensembles. At the same time, ergodic static systems

Thermalization in a periodically driven fully connected quantum Ising ferromagnet

By means of a Floquet analysis, we study the quantum dynamics of a fully connected Lipkin-Ising ferromagnet in a periodically driven transverse field showing that thermalization in the steady state

Diffusive and Subdiffusive Spin Transport in the Ergodic Phase of a Many-Body Localizable System.

Studying finite-size effects, it is shown numerically and theoretically that a very large crossover length exists that controls the passage of a clean-system dominated dynamics to one observed in the thermodynamic limit.

Anomalous Thermalization in Ergodic Systems.

It is found that for subdiffusively thermalizing systems the variance scales more slowly with system size than expected for diffusive systems, directly violating Berry's conjecture.

The approach to thermal equilibrium in quantized chaotic systems

We consider many-body quantum systems that exhibit quantum chaos, in the sense that the observables of interest act on energy eigenstates like banded random matrices. We study the time-dependent

Dynamical localization of interacting ultracold atomic kicked rotors

We study a system of two atomic quantum kicked rotors with hard-core interaction. This system shows different dynamical behavior depending on the value of the kick period. In particular, we find that
