Quantum Matter: Emergence & Entanglement 3

Speaker(s): 

The interplay of symmetry and topology has been at the forefront of recent progress in quantum matter. In this talk I will discuss an unexpected connection between band topology and competing orders in a quantum magnet. The key player is the two-dimensional Dirac spin liquid (DSL), which at low energies is described by an emergent Quantum Electrodynamics (QED) with massless Dirac fermions (a.k.a. spinons) coupled to a U(1) gauge field. A long-standing open question concerns the symmetry properties of the magnetic monopoles, an important class of critical degrees of freedom.

I will discuss several examples of novel continuous phase transitions, primarily in 3+1-D, that are beyond the standard Landau paradigm of order parameter fluctuations. These provide non-trivial examples of deconfined quantum critical points.

Speaker(s): 

In the study of three-dimensional gapped models, two-dimensional gapped states can be considered as a free resource. This is the basic idea underlying our proposal of the notion of `foliated fracton order'. Using this idea, we have found that many of the known type-I fracton models, like the X-cube model and the checkerboard model, have the same foliated fracton order. In this talk, I will present three-dimensional fracton models with a different kind of foliated fracton order.
