Wetting critical behavior within the Lindblad dissipative dynamics

  title={Wetting critical behavior within the Lindblad dissipative dynamics},
  author={Claudia Artiaco and Andrea Nava and Michele Fabrizio},
We investigate the critical behavior, both in space and time, of the wetting interface within the coexistence region around the first-order phase transition of a fully-connected quantum Ising model in a slab geometry. For that, we employ the Lindblad master equation in which temperature is inherited by the coupling to a dissipative bath rather than being a functional parameter as in the conventional Cahn’s free energy. Lindblad’s approach gives not only access to the dissipative dynamics and…

Lindblad master equation approach to the topological phase transition in the disordered Su-Schrieffer-Heeger model

We use the Lindblad equation method to investigate the onset of a mobility edge and the topological phase transition in the disordered SSH chain connected to two external baths in the large bias



Lindblad dissipative dynamics in the presence of phase coexistence

We investigate the dissipative dynamics yielded by the Lindblad equation within the coexistence region around a first order phase transition. In particular, we consider an exactly-solvable

A unified treatment of the wetting transition in three dimensions with short-range interactions is given and it appears that the possible effects of the nonlinear terms in the renormalization group do not alter the critical behavior found using the truncated linear renormalized group.

Nonequilibrium and nonhomogeneous phenomena around a first-order quantum phase transition

We consider non-equilibrium phenomena in a very simple model that displays a zero-temperature first-order phase transition. The quantum Ising model with a four-spin exchange is adopted as a general

Signatures of many-body localization in the dynamics of two-level systems in glasses

We study the dynamics and the spread of entanglement of two-level systems (TLSs) in amorphous solids at low temperatures (around 1K). By considering the coupling to phonons within the framework of

Open XXZ spin chain: nonequilibrium steady state and a strict bound on ballistic transport.

An explicit matrix product ansatz is presented, in the first two orders in the (weak) coupling parameter, for the nonequilibrium steady state of the homogeneous, nearest neighbor Heisenberg XXZ spin

Theory of Wetting and Surface Critical Phenomena

Surfaces and interfaces exhibit a rich variety of phase transitions. While some of these phase transitions also occur in the bulk, others involve coupling between surface and bulk degrees of freedom;

Tuning the wetting transition: Prewetting and superfluidity of 4He on thin cesium substrates.

The transition from thin normal to thick superfluid occurs without the dissipation peak characteristic of a Kosterlitz-Thouless transition.

Facilitated spin models of dissipative quantum glasses.

A class of dissipative quantum spin models with local interactions and without quenched disorder that show glassy behavior is introduced and it is found that close to the classical limit, quantum fluctuations can enhance glassiness, as recently reported for quantum liquids.

Surface dead layer for quasiparticles near a mott transition.

It is shown that corresponding to the bulk weakening, a dead layer forms below the surface of the solid, where quasiparticles are exponentially suppressed, and this phenomenon is described in a Hubbard model within a self-consistent Gutzwiller approximation.
