Riku’s new paper on the adiabatic preparation of a correlated symmetry-broken initial state with the generalized Kadanoff-Baym ansatz is on arXiv.
Our paper on cavity QED superconductivity is online: arXiv:1802.09437. We propose to use the coupling of matter to quantized photon modes inside a cavity to enhance electron-phonon coupling and influence superconductivity.
Riku’s paper with Mike Ridley on charge pumping in ac-driven graphene nanoribbons has been published in Physical Review B. Congrats! Popular summary: Typically, electronic current flowing through a conductor needs a net voltage to be applied across the conductor. However, applying an alternating voltage, which is zero on average, may induce a direct current. This… Continue reading Charge pumping in graphene
Our paper on nonequilibrium enhancement of electron-phonon coupling in driven nonlinearly coupled systems has been published in Physical Review B.
Our work “Theory of Laser-Controlled Competing Superconducting and Charge Orders” has been published in Physical Review Letters.
Our preprint “Light-enhanced electron-phonon coupling from nonlinear electron-phonon coupling” is available on arXiv. In this work, it is shown how one can amplify electron-lattice coupling by using lasers that are tuned to a phonon, that is coupled quadratically to the electrons of the material. Such enhanced electron-lattice coupling can lead to the formation of polarons… Continue reading How to make a material more correlated with light

In a new theory published on arXiv today we show how a laser beam can exert control in a system with competing superconducting and charge orders. The underlying mechanism with a striking resonance for photon frequencies near the gap edge may even be used to understand light-induced superconductivity. The above figure illustrates how a symmetry… Continue reading Control of competing orders
