    Spectral weight suppression in response functions of ultracold fermion-boson mixtures

    Full text link
    We study the dynamical response of ultracold fermion-boson mixture in the Bogoliubov regime, where the interactions between fermionic impurities and bosonic excitations (phonons) are described by an effective Frohlich model under the Bogoliubov approximation. A characteristic suppression of the single-particle spectral weight is found in the small momentum region where the impurity band and phonon mode intersect. Using diagrammatic technique we compute the Bragg spectra as well as the momentum dependent force-force correlation function. We fnd that both of them are heavily affected by the spectral weight suppression effect at low impurity densities in both 1D and 2D systems. We show that the the spectral weight suppression feature in Bragg spectra, which was previously found in the quantum Monte Carlo simulations and which cannot be recovered by the random phase approximation, can be accurately reproduced with the help of vertex corrections.Comment: 14 pages, 10 figures.

    Dynamical response of ultracold interacting fermion-boson mixtures

    Full text link
    We analyze the dynamical response of a ultracold binary gas mixture in presence of strong boson-fermion couplings. Mapping the problem onto that of the optical response of a metal/semiconductor electronic degrees of freedom to electromagnetic perturbation we calculate the corresponding dynamic linear response susceptibility in the non-perturbative regimes of strong boson-fermion coupling using diagrammatic resummation technique as well as quantum Monte Carlo simulations. We evaluate the Bragg spectral function as well as the optical conductivity and find a pseudogap, which forms in certain parameter regimes.Comment: 32 pages, 13 figure

    Rydberg crystallization detection by statistical means

    Full text link
    We investigate an ensemble of atoms which can be excited into a Rydberg state. Using a disordered quantum Ising model, we perform a numerical simulation of the experimental procedure and calculate the probability distribution function P(M)P(M) to create a certain number of Rydberg atoms MM, as well as their pair correlation function. Using the latter, we identify the critical interaction strength above which the system undergoes a phase transition to a Rydberg crystal. We then show that this phase transition can be detected using P(M)P(M) alone.Comment: 7 pages, 9 figure

    Detecting an exciton crystal by statistical means

    Full text link
    We investigate an ensemble of excitons in a coupled quantum well excited via an applied laser field. Using an effective disordered quantum Ising model, we perform a numerical simulation of the experimental procedure and calculate the probability distribution function P(M)P(M) to create MM excitons as well as their correlation function. It shows clear evidence of the existence of two phases corresponding to a liquid and a crystal phase. We demonstrate that not only the correlation function but also the distribution P(M)P(M) is very well suited to monitor this transition.Comment: 5 pages, 5 figure

    Bosonic transport through a chain of quantum dots

    Full text link
    The particle transport through a chain of quantum dots coupled to two bosonic reservoirs is studied. For the case of reservoirs of non-interacting bosonic particles, we derive an exact set of stochastic differential equations, whose memory kernels and driving noise are characterised entirely by the properties of the reservoirs. Going to the Markovian limit an analytically solvable case is presented. The effect of interparticle interactions on the transient behaviour of the system, when both reservoirs are instantaneously coupled to an empty chain of quantum dots, is approximated by a semiclassical method, known as the Truncated Wigner approximation. The steady-state particle flow through the chain and the mean particle occupations are explained via the spectral properties of the interacting system.Comment: 7 pages, 4 figure

    Full counting statistics of persistent current

    No full text
    We develop a method for calculation of charge transfer statistics of persistent current in nanostructures in terms of the cumulant generating function (CGF) of transferred charge. We consider a simply connected one-dimensional system (a wire) and develop a procedure for the calculation of the CGF of persistent currents when the wire is closed into a ring via a weak link. For the non-interacting system we derive a general formula in terms of the two-particle Green's functions. We show that, contrary to the conventional tunneling contacts, the resulting cumulant generating function has a doubled periodicity as a function of the counting field. We apply our general formula to short tight-binding chains and show that the resulting CGF perfectly reproduces the known evidence for the persistent current. Its second cumulant turns out to be maximal at the switching points and vanishes identically at zero temperature. Furthermore, we apply our formalism for a computation of the charge transfer statistics of genuinely interacting systems. First we consider a ring with an embedded Anderson impurity and employing a self-energy approximation find an overall suppression of persistent current as well as of its noise. Finally, we compute the charge transfer statistics of a double quantum dot system in the deep Kondo limit using an exact analytical solution of the model at the Toulouse point. We analyze the behaviour of the resulting cumulants and compare them with those of a noninteracting double quantum dot system and find several pronounced differences, which can be traced back to interaction effects
