Tunable Non-equilibrium Phase Transitions between Spatial and Temporal Order through Dissipation

  title={Tunable Non-equilibrium Phase Transitions between Spatial and Temporal Order through Dissipation},
  author={Zhao Zhang and Davide Dreon and Tilman Esslinger and Dieter Jaksch and Berislav Bu{\vc}a and Tobias Donner},
We propose an experiment with a driven quantum gas coupled to a dissipative optical cavity that realizes a novel kind of far-from-equilibrium phase transition between spatial and temporal order. The control parameter of the transition is the detuning between the drive frequency and the cavity resonance. For negative detunings, the system features a spatially ordered phase, while positive detunings lead to a phase with both spatial order and persistent oscillations, which we call dissipative…

Protecting coherence from the environment via Stark many-body localization in a Quantum-Dot Simulator

Semiconductor platforms are emerging as promising architecture for storing and processing quantum information, e.g., in quantum dot spin qubits. However, charge noise coming from interactions between

Condensate formation in a dark state of a driven atom-cavity system

We demonstrate condensate formation in a dark state in an ultracold quantum gas coupled to a high-finesse cavity and pumped by a shaken optical lattice. We show experimentally and theoretically that



Exact solution of a boundary time-crystal phase transition: Time-translation symmetry breaking and non-Markovian dynamics of correlations

The breaking of the continuous time-translation symmetry manifests, in Markovian open quantum systems, through the emergence of non-stationary dynamical phases. Systems that display nonequilibrium

Dissipation-Engineered Family of Nearly Dark States in Many-Body Cavity-Atom Systems.

Three-level atomic systems coupled to light have the capacity to host dark states. We study a system of V-shaped three-level atoms coherently coupled to the two quadratures of a dissipative cavity.

Self-induced entanglement resonance in a disordered Bose-Fermi mixture

Different regimes of entanglement growth under measurement have been demonstrated for quantum many-body systems, with an entangling phase for low measurement rates and a disentangling phase for high

Scaling and Renormalization in Statistical Physics

This text provides a thoroughly modern graduate-level introduction to the theory of critical behaviour. Beginning with a brief review of phase transitions in simple systems and of mean field theory,

Algebraic theory of quantum synchronization and limit cycles under dissipation

Synchronization is a phenomenon where interacting particles lock their motion and display non-trivial dynamics. Despite intense efforts studying synchronization in systems without clear classical
