We investigate the interplay of superradiant phase transition (SPT) and energy band physics in an extended Dicke-Hubbard lattice whose unit cell consists of a Dicke model coupled to an atomless cavity. We found in such a periodic lattice the critical point that occurs in a single Dicke model becomes a critical region that is periodically changing with the wavenumber $k$. In the weak-coupling normal phase of the system we observed a flat band and its corresponding localization that can be…

Characterizing the Quantum Phase Transition using a Flat Band in Circuit QED Lattices

We show the superradiant phase transition (SPT) can control the existence of flat band in an extended Dicke-Hubbard lattice [1].



Incompressible Polaritons in a Flat Band.

It is shown how to engineer strong photonic correlations in such a driven, dissipative system by quenching the kinetic energy through frustration, which produces an incompressible state of photons characterized by short-ranged crystalline order with period doubling.

Superradiant phase transition in a model of three-level-Λsystems interacting with two bosonic modes

We consider an ensemble of three-level particles in lambda-configuration interacting with two bosonic modes. The Hamiltonian has the form of a generalized Dicke-model. We show that in the

Dicke quantum phase transition with a superfluid gas in an optical cavity

The Dicke quantum phase transition is realized in an open system formed by a Bose–Einstein condensate coupled to an optical cavity, and the emergence of a self-organized supersolid phase is observed.

Bosonic Condensation and Disorder-Induced Localization in a Flat Band.

The engineering of a nondispersive (flat) energy band in a geometrically frustrated lattice of micropillar optical cavities offers a novel approach to studying coherent phases of light and matter under the controlled interplay of frustration, interactions, and dissipation.

Phase transition of light in circuit QED lattices coupled to nitrogen-vacancy centers in diamond

We propose a hybrid quantum architecture for engineering a photonicMott insulator-superfluid phase transition in a two-dimensional (2D) square lattice of a superconducting transmission line resonator

Interaction-Driven Shift and Distortion of a Flat Band in an Optical Lieb Lattice.

The momentum-resolved measurement of Bloch bands in an optical Lieb lattice for a Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC) shows that the second band, which should be flat in a single-particle description, is shifted and distorted around the Brillouin zone edge as the interaction strength increases.

Quantum phase transition of nonlocal Ising chain with transverse field in a resonator

We study the quantum phase transition in a spin chain with variable Ising interactions and position-dependent coupling to a resonator field. Such a complicated model, usually not present in natural

Coherent driving and freezing of bosonic matter wave in an optical Lieb lattice

This work reports the realization of a “Lieb lattice” configuration with an optical lattice, which has a flat energy band as the first excited state, and investigates the inter-sublattice dynamics of the system by projecting the sublattices population onto the band population.

Phase transitions and dark-state physics in two-color superradiance

We theoretically study an extension of the Dicke model, where the single-particle Hamiltonian has three energy levels in Lambda configuration (i.e., the excited state is coupled to two nondegenerate

Observation of a Localized Flat-Band State in a Photonic Lieb Lattice.

The first experimental realization of a dispersionless state is demonstrated, in a photonic Lieb lattice formed by an array of optical waveguides, which opens an exciting door towards quantum simulation of flat-band models in a highly controllable environment.
