The Fermi liquid paradigm for metals has contributed enormously to our understanding of condensed matter systems. However a growing number of quantum critical systems have been shown to exhibit non Fermi liquid behavior. A full understanding of such systems is still lacking and in particular analytical results away from equilibrium are rare. In this work, we provide a distinct example of such kind in a two channel Kondo Luttinger model where a Kondo impurity couples to two voltage biased…

Thermalization and transient dynamics in Multi-Channel Kondo systems under the quantum quench: Large-$N$ Schwinger-Keldysh approach

Understanding properties in out-of-equilibrium many-body quantum systems is an essential task in modern physics. While cutting-edge numerical methods have been developed, extracting the universal

The resonant-level model represents a paradigmatic quantum system which serves as a basis for many other quantum impurity models. We provide a comprehensive analysis of the nonequilibrium transport

Nonequilibrium transport through double quantum dots: exact results near a quantum critical point.

An exact universal result is presented for the finite temperature nonlinear conductance along the crossover from this quantum critical point to the low energy Fermi liquid phase.

Quantum criticality in a Kondo quantum dot coupled to helical edge states of interacting 2D topological insulators

We investigate theoretically the quantum phase transition (QPT) between the one-channel Kondo (1CK) and two-channel Kondo (2CK) fixed points in a quantum dot coupled to helical edge states of

Observation of the two-channel Kondo effect

This work combines artificial atoms to create a highly correlated electron system within a nano-engineered semiconductor structure and tunes the system in situ through a quantum phase transition between two distinct states, each a version of the Kondo state, in which a bound electron interacts with surrounding mobile electrons.

Quantum dot in a two-dimensional topological insulator: The two-channel Kondo fixed point

A quantum dot coupled to two helical edge states of a two-dimensional topological insulator through electron tunnelings is studied. We show that if the electron interactions on the edge states are

Kondo effect in quantum dots at high voltage: universality and scaling.

It is argued that due to the large gamma, the two-channel Kondo physics is induced by a large voltage V and can be described by renormalized perturbation theory in 1/ln(V/T(K))<<1.

Unpaired Majorana fermions in quantum wires

Certain one-dimensional Fermi systems have an energy gap in the bulk spectrum while boundary states are described by one Majorana operator per boundary point. A finite system of length L possesses

We present an exact solution to the nonequilibrium Kondo problem, based on a special point in the parameter space of the model where both the Hamiltonian and the operator describing the

Mapping of the two-channel Kondo problem to a resonant-level model.

It is shown that the pairing resonance of the two-channel Kondo problem may be characterized as an enhancement of superconducting pairing of the conduction electrons at the impurities site, correlated with the impurity pseudospin.

We investigate the influence of an electromagnetic environment, characterized by a finite impedance Z(omega), on the Kondo effect in quantum dots. The circuit voltage fluctuations couple to charge
