Abstract:

In this talk, we will discuss two recent developments in non-equilibrium quantum dynamics of strongly interacting many-body systems: I. critically slow thermalization in a disordered dipolar spin ensemble [1] and II. the observation of discrete time crystalline order [2]. Both of these experiments were enabled by a high density ensemble of nitrogen-vacancy (NV) color centers in diamond [3]. As a mixture of theory and experiments, the talk will be self-contained and pedagogical, reviewing some of basic concepts in many-body localization, Floquet time-crystal, spin properties of NV centers and experimental techniques to manipulate and engineer the dynamics.

Part I:

Statistical mechanics underlies our understanding of macroscopic quantum systems. It is based on the assumption that out-of-equilibrium systems rapidly approach their equilibrium states, forgetting any information about their microscopic initial conditions. This fundamental paradigm is challenged by disordered systems, in which a slowdown or even absence of thermalization is expected. By controlling the spin states of the ~10^6 NV centers, we observe slow, sub-exponential thermalization consistent with power laws that exhibit disorder-dependent exponents; this behavior is modified at late times owing to many-body interactions. These observations are quantitatively explained by a resonance counting theory that incorporates the effects of both disorder and interactions

Part II:

The interplay of periodic driving, disorder, and strong interactions has recently been predicted to result in exotic ``time-crystalline'' phases, which spontaneously break the discrete time-translation symmetry of the underlying drive. We report the experimental observation of such discrete time-crystalline order and the observation of long-lived temporal correlations at integer multiples of the fundamental driving period. We experimentally identify the phase boundary and find that the temporal order is protected by strong interactions; this order is remarkably stable against perturbations, even in the presence of slow thermalization. We provide a theoretical description of approximate Floquet eigenstates of the system based on product state ansatz and predict the phase boundary, which is in qualitative agreement with our observations.
