摘要:Since the seminal work by P. W. Anderson in 1958 [1], quantum localization has been a central subject of condensed matter physics. In the past decade, this subject has again become an area of intense research activities as people realized that (single-particle) Anderson localization may survive finite interactions [2], leading to a many-body localized phase. More importantly, when an isolated system is many-body localized, it strongly violates the familiar ergodicity hypothesis in quantum statistical mechanics and fails to thermalize on its own. In this talk, I will focus on a one-dimensional mutually incommensurate bichromatic lattice system which has been implemented in ultracold atoms to study quantum localization. We argue that without interactions, there exists a single-particle mobility edge (SPME) in the energy spectrum [3], which is an energy that separates extended eigenstates from localized ones. Our theoretical work subsequently led to a first experimental observation of SPME in one-dimensional systems [4-5]. We further study the properties of many-body localization in such a system when the interaction is turned on, and discuss its implications for a possible many-body mobility edge. In particular, we show that state-of-the-art machine learning techniques [6] can help us understand the phase diagram in this intriguing many-body system.
