The Luther-Emery liquid: Spin gap and anomalous flux period

  title={The Luther-Emery liquid: Spin gap and anomalous flux period},
  author={A. Seidel and Dunghai Lee},
  journal={Physical Review B},
We study the dependence of the ground state energy on an applied Aharonov-Bohm flux $\ensuremath{\Phi}$ for the Luttinger model with large momentum scattering. Employing the method of finite size bosonization, we show that for systems with a spin gap but with gapless charge degrees of freedom, the ground state energy has an exact period of $hc∕2e$, i.e., half a flux quantum, in the limit of large system size $L$. Finite size corrections are found to vanish exponentially in $L$. This behavior is… Expand
Luther-Emery phase and atomic-density waves in a trapped fermion gas.
This Letter studies by means of the density-matrix renormalization-group technique a two-component atomic Fermi gas with attractive interactions subject to parabolic trapping inside an optical lattice and demonstrates how this system exhibits compound phases characterized by the coexistence of spin pairing and atomic-density waves.

Symmetry-protected spin gaps in quantum wires.
This work shows that a strongly correlated phase which is gapped to collective spin excitations but gapless to charge fluctuations emerges as a universal feature in one-dimensional fermionic systemsExpand

Instability of the sliding Luttinger liquid.
A phase diagram for the sliding Luttinger liquid of coupled one-dimensional quantum wires packed in two- or three-dimensional arrays in the absence of a magnetic field is revised and it is found that the most relevant perturbations always destroys the SLL phase for the repulsive intra-wire interaction.

The physical properties of arbitrary half-integer spins F=N−1/2 fermionic cold atoms loaded into a one-dimensional optical lattice are investigated by means of a conformal field theory approach. WeExpand
Complex phase diagram of doped XXZ ladder: Localization and pairing
How the ground state nature can be dramatically changed by the distinct underlying spin correlation is a central issue of doped Mott insulators. The two-leg XXZ ladder provides a prototypical spinExpand
Duality approach to one-dimensional degenerate electronic systems
Abstract We investigate the possible classification of zero-temperature spin-gapped phases of multicomponent electronic systems in one spatial dimension. At the heart of our analysis is the existenceExpand
Nontopological parafermions in a one-dimensional fermionic model with even multiplet pairing
We discuss a one-dimensional fermionic model with a generalized ZN even multiplet pairing extending Kitaev Z2 chain. The system shares many features with models believed to host localized edgeExpand
Number-conserving analysis of measurement-based braiding with Majorana zero modes
Majorana-based quantum computation seeks to encode information nonlocally in pairs of Majorana zero modes, thereby isolating qubit states from a local noisy environment. In addition to long coherenceExpand

Using Haldane`s notion of topological excitations, a proof of Leggett`s conjecture is presented, stating that the ground state of interacting 1 D quantum systems is diamagnetic or paramagnetic depending on the parity of N0. Expand
The fractional Aharonov-Bohm effect in mesoscopic rings
We study the effects of correlations on a one-dimensional ring threaded by a uniform magnetic flux. In order to describe the interaction between particles, we work in the framework of the HubbardExpand
Flux Period, Spin Gap, and Pairing in the One-Dimensional t-J-J' Model.
It is conjecture that all spin-gapped SU(2)-invariant Luttinger liquids have hc/2e flux periodicity, and that this is connected to the fact that a gapped spin-1/2 chain always breaks translational symmetry by doubling the unit cell. Expand
One-dimensional Fermi liquids
We review the progress in the theory of one-dimensional (ID) Fermi liquids which has occurred over the past decade. The usual Fermi liquid theory, based on a quasi-particle picture, breaks down inExpand
Luttinger liquid theory of one-dimensional quantum fluids. I. Properties of the Luttinger model and their extension to the general 1D interacting spinless Fermi gas
The explicitly soluble Luttinger model is used as a basis for the description of the general interacting Fermi gas in one dimension, which will be called 'Luttinger liquid theory', by analogy withExpand
Exact Solution of a Many-Fermion System and Its Associated Boson Field
Luttinger’s exactly soluble model of a one-dimensional many-fermion system is discussed. We show that he did not solve his model properly because of the paradoxical fact that the density operatorExpand
Flux quantization in rings for Hubbard (attractive and repulsive) and t-J-like Hamiltonians.

Flux quantization and pairing in one-dimensional copper-oxide models.
The results suggest a superconductive state at [ital V] of order the charge-transfer gap of the model, but a paired and phase-separated state at larger [ital M], and the extrapolated superfluid stiffness appears to be finite only for not too large [ital L]. Expand
