Emanuele Dalla Torre - From Floquet engineering to prethermalization of peridically driven systems

  • Date: Feb 20, 2018
  • Time: 11:00 - 12:00
  • Speaker: Emanuele Dalla Torre
  • Bar-Ilan University, Israel
  • Location: CFEL (Bldg. 99)
  • Room: Seminar Room IV, O1.111
  • Host: Angel Rubio

In this talk, I will give an introduction to the concept of "Floquet engineering", focusing on the case of one-dimensional spin chains. I will then explain why the experimental realization is usually hindered by heating, and present a few proposed methods to solve this problem. In particular, I will discuss the use of high-frequency drives, where pre-thermalization is observed. My talk will mostly focus on interacting quantum systems, but I will show that these concepts are relevant to the dynamics of classical systems as well.
