Broken adiabaticity induced by Lifshitz transition in MoS2 and WS2 single layers

Abstract:

The breakdown of the adiabatic Born-Oppenheimer approximation is striking dynamical phenomenon, however, it occurs only in a handful of layered materials. Here, I show that adiabaticity breaks down in doped single-layer transition metal dichalcogenides in a quite intriguing manner. Namely, significant nonadiabatic coupling, which acts on frequencies of the Raman-active modes, is prompted by a Lifshitz transition due to depopulation and population of multiple valence and conduction valleys, respectively. The outset of ...

Time Evolution of Entanglement entropy for Thermofield Double States

School
PARTICLES AND ACCELERATORS

Abstract: We review the time evolution of the entanglement entropy of the thermofield double (TFD) states for scalar quantum field theory on a circle?. ?It is observed that the entanglement entropy growth linearly in early times and saturates after a time of the order of the length of subregion?, ?similar to the time evolution of the entanglement entropy in non-equilibrium quantum systems following quench?. The ?zero ?mode? effect has also been shown to manifest itself as logarithmic growth???, ?which is derived analytically for a subsystem consisting of a single degrees of freedom on each side of the TFD at the massless limit?.

ASTRONOMY

The so-called Lovelock theorem implies that the Einstein-Hilbert action is unique in four dimensions D=4. Recently, it was claimed that nontrivial dynamics from the Gauss-Bonnet term, which is not dynamical in D=4, can be achieved through a dimensional regularization process if we start from D(>4) dimensions and then take the D -> 4 limit. Taking this nontrivial contribution into account, they found a new theory of D->4 Einstein-Gauss-Bonnet gravity and bypassed the Lovelock theorem. Soon after that, some doubts were raised about the idea. In this talk, in the first part we clarify the source of doubts. In the second part, we provide consiste ...

The effect of noise on Casimir nano-machines

School
PHYSICS

It is already shown that two sinusoidally corrugated plates exert lateral Casimir force to each other. Utilizing lateral Casimir force, it is possible to design several nanomachines. We investigate the effect of noise on Casimir nanomachines. We use a corrugated plate (rack) and a corrugated cylinder (pinion) to design a nano-sensor. We show that the designed Casimir nanomachine is an excitable system. Observing the temporal position signal of the pinion, Casimir force along with friction coefficient could be extracted. Utilizing this method, Casimir force amplitudes of the order 0.1-1 pN could be measured.

It is also shown th ...

Interpolative Fusions

School
MATHEMATICS

The new notion of interpolative fusions provides a unified framework for studying many examples of "generic constructions" in model theory. Some, like structures with generic predicates, or algebraically closed fields with several independent valuations, are explicitly interpolative fusions, while others, like structures with generic automorphisms, or fields with generic operators, are bi-interpretable with interpolative fusions. The idea is to take two expansions T and T' of a common reduct theory and study models of their union such that the T and T' structures interact "randomly" up to constrains imposed by the common reduct. If T and T' a ...
