  • A system gradually driven through a symmetry-breaking phase transition is subject to the Kibble-Zurek mechanism (KZM). As a consequence of the critical slowing down, its state cannot follow local equilibrium, and its evolution becomes non-adiabatic near the critical point. In the simplest approximation, that stage can be regarded as "impulse" where the state of the system remains unchanged. It leads to the correct KZM scaling laws. However, such "freeze-out" might suggest that the coherence… CONTINUE READING
