Non-Abelian statistics and topological quantum information processing in 1D wire networks

The synthesis of a quantum computer remains an ongoing challenge in modern physics. Whereas decoherence stymies most approaches, topological quantum computation schemes evade decoherence at the… Expand

Floquet topological insulator in semiconductor quantum wells

- N. Lindner, G. Refael, V. Galitski
- Physics
- 10 August 2010

Topological phases of matter have captured our imagination over the past few years, with tantalizing properties such as robust edge modes and exotic non-Abelian excitations, and potential… Expand

Hilbert-Glass Transition: New Universality of Temperature-Tuned Many-Body Dynamical Quantum Criticality

- D. Pekker, G. Refael, E. Altman, E. Demler, V. Oganesyan
- Physics
- 11 July 2013

Conventional phase transitions are usually characterized by a change in a fundamental thermodynamic observable, e.g., in density when liquid changes to vapor. A theoretical study of a one-dimensional… Expand

Many-body localization in a quasiperiodic system

- Shankar Iyer, V. Oganesyan, G. Refael, D. Huse
- Physics
- 17 December 2012

Recent theoretical and numerical evidence suggests that localization can survive in disordered many-body systems with very high energy density, provided that interactions are sufficiently weak.… Expand

Fractionalizing Majorana fermions: non-abelian statistics on the edges of abelian quantum Hall states

- N. Lindner, E. Berg, G. Refael, A. Stern
- Physics
- 25 April 2012

We study the non-abelian statistics characterizing systems where counter-propagating gapless modes on the edges of fractional quantum Hall states are gapped by proximity-coupling to superconductors… Expand

Anomalous Floquet-Anderson Insulator as a Nonadiabatic Quantized Charge Pump

- P. Titum, E. Berg, M. Rudner, G. Refael, N. Lindner
- Physics
- 1 June 2015

We show that two-dimensional periodically driven quantum systems with spatial disorder admit a unique topological phase, which we call the anomalous Floquet-Anderson insulator (AFAI). The AFAI is… Expand
