Collective Quantum Dynamics

Prof. Michael Knap

Research Field

The research of our group aims at a broad range of questions from condensed matter theory and bridges to quantum optics, atomic physics, and computational sciences. Interactions and correlations in condensed matter systems often manifest in striking and novel properties. These properties emerge from collective behavior of the quantum particles. Many examples can be found in nature, including superconductors, quantum magnets and superfluids. Our research address various questions in non-equilibrium quantum dynamics and transport in ultracold quantum gases, interacting light-matter systems, and correlated quantum materials.

Emergent (non-linear) hydrodynamics in ultracold quantum gases
Isolated quantum matter can thermalize locally because the surrounding system can act as a path. We will study how hydrodynamics can emerge at late times in such systems. The field of quantum dynamics is quickly evolving. Please contact me directly to discuss a concrete project.

Fractonic quantum matter at low temperatures
Fractonic quantum matter possesses excitations with constrained mobility. In two dimensions, excitations can for example only move on one dimensional lines. The goal of this thesis is to study either with numerical or field theoretical techniques their ground state and dynamical properties. The field of fractions is quickly evolving. Please contact me directly to discuss a concrete project.

Disordered quantum systems: Many-body localization

Disorder has a drastic influence on transport properties. In the presence of a random potential, a system of electrons can become insulating; a phenomenon known as many-body localization (MBL) that has been envisioned by the Nobel laureate Phil Anderson. However, even beyond the vanishing transport such systems have very intriguing properties. For example, many-body localization describes an exotic state of matter, in which fundamental concepts of statistical mechanics break down. In this project we will explore these exciting aspects of many-body localization.
