Quantum phases of dipolar bosons in multilayer optical lattice

We consider a minimal model to investigate the quantum phases of hardcore, polarized dipolar atoms confined in multilayer optical lattices. The model is a variant of the extended Bose-Hubbard model, which incorporates intralayer repulsion and …

Non-invasive measurement of currents in analog quantum simulators

Despite the pristine abilities of analog quantum simulators to study quantum dynamics, possibilities to detect currents are sparse. Here, we propose a flexible non-invasive technique to measure currents in quantum many-body systems by weakly coupling …

Dynamical phase transitions in quantum spin models with antiferromagnetic long-range interactions

In recent years, dynamical phase transitions and out-of-equilibrium criticality have been at the forefront of ultracold gases and condensed matter research. Whereas universality and scaling are established topics in equilibrium quantum many-body …

Quantum quench dynamics of dipolar bosons in 2D optical lattices

We investigate the quench dynamics of the dipolar bosons in two dimensional optical lattice of square geometry using the time dependent Gutzwiller method. The system exhibits different density orders like the checkerboard and the striped pattern, …

Critical slowing down in sudden quench dynamics

We reveal a prethermal dynamical regime upon suddenly quenching to the vicinity of a quantum phase transition in the time evolution of one-dimensional spin chains. The prethermal regime is analytically found to be self-similar and its duration is …

Generalized Discrete Truncated Wigner Approximation for Nonadiabtic Quantum-Classical Dynamics

Nonadiabatic molecular dynamics occur in a wide range of chemical reactions and femtochemistry experiments involving electronically excited states. These dynamics are hard to treat numerically as the system's complexity increases and it is thus …

From non-Hermitian linear response to dynamical correlations and fluctuation–dissipation relations in quantum many-body systems

Quantum many-body systems are characterized by their correlations. While equal-time correlators and unequal-time commutators between operators are standard observables, the direct access to unequal-time *anti-commutators* poses a formidable …

Unconventional critical exponents at dynamical quantum phase transitions in a random Ising chain

Dynamical quantum phase transitions (DQPTs) feature singular temporal behavior in transient quantum states during nonequilibrium real-time evolution. In this work we show that DQPTs in random Ising chains exhibit critical behavior with nontrivial …

Out-of-equilibrium phase diagram of long-range superconductors

Within the ultimate goal of classifying universality in quantum many-body dynamics, understanding the relation between out-of-equilibrium and equilibrium criticality is a crucial objective. Models with power-law interactions exhibit rich …
