Many-Body Localization

Many-Body Localization (MBL) is the reminiscent of Anderson localization in interacting systems. The importance of MBL, which has attracted a lot of attention in recent years, comes from the fact that it challenges the very foundations of quantum statistical physics, leading to striking theoretical and experimental consequences such as breaking both: (i) ergodicity; and (ii) eigenstate thermalisation hypothesis and thus absence of thermalisation. In our group we are mainly interested to explore MBL using quantum information tools, such as entanglement. In particular, we are interested to find out the the properties of the MBL systems near the transition point from an ergodic to MBL phase.
