We utilize a general strategy to turn classes of frustration free lattice models into similar classes containing quantum many-body scars within the bulk of their spectrum while preserving much or all of the original symmetry. We apply this strategy to a well-known class of quantum dimer models on the kagome lattice with a large parameter space. We discuss that the properties of the resulting scar state(s), including entanglement entropy, are analytically accessible. Settling on a particular…

Motif magnetism and quantum many-body scars
We generally expect quantum systems to thermalize and satisfy the eigenstate thermalization hypothesis (ETH), which states that finite energy density eigenstates are thermal. However, some systems,
Quantum many-body scars and weak breaking of ergodicity
Recent discovery of persistent revivals in quantum simulators based on Rydberg atoms have pointed to the existence of a new type of dynamical behavior that challenged the conventional paradigms of
Weak ergodicity breaking through the lens of quantum entanglement
Recent studies of interacting systems of quantum spins, ultracold atoms and correlated fermions have shed a new light on how isolated many-body systems can avoid rapid equilibration to their thermal

Multiple quantum scar states and emergent slow thermalization in a flat-band system
Quantum many-body scars (QMBS) appear in a flat-band model with interactions on the sawtooth lattice. The flat-band model includes a compact support localized eigenstates, called compact localized
Proposal for Realizing Quantum Scars in the Tilted 1D Fermi-Hubbard Model.
It is demonstrated that correlated fermions in tilted optical lattices provide a platform for understanding the interplay of many-body scarring and other forms of ergodicity breaking, such as localization and Hilbert space fragmentation.

Entanglement entropy of excited states in the quantum Lifshitz model
In this work we calculate the entanglement entropy of certain excited states of the quantum Lifshitz model (QLM). The QLM is a 2 + 1-dimensional bosonic quantum field theory with an anisotropic
Frustration-induced emergent Hilbert space fragmentation
Frustration in interacting systems can constrain dynamics which in turn gives rise to glassy behavior. Although interacting quantum systems tend to thermalize locally on short time scales independent
Probing many-body localization in a disordered quantum dimer model on the honeycomb lattice
We numerically study the possibility of many-body localization transition in a disordered quantum dimer model on the honeycomb lattice. By using the peculiar constraints of this model and


Weak ergodicity breaking from quantum many-body scars
The thermodynamic description of many-particle systems rests on the assumption of ergodicity, the ability of a system to explore all allowed configurations in the phase space. Recent studies on
Many-body localization in a quantum simulator with programmable random disorder
Interacting quantum systems are expected to thermalize, but in some situations in the presence of disorder they can exist in localized states instead. This many-body localization is studied
Probing many-body dynamics on a 51-atom quantum simulator
This work demonstrates a method for creating controlled many-body quantum matter that combines deterministically prepared, reconfigurable arrays of individually trapped cold atoms with strong, coherent interactions enabled by excitation to Rydberg states, and realizes a programmable Ising-type quantum spin model with tunable interactions and system sizes of up to 51 qubits.
