  • Condensed Matter seminar: "Fracton phase of matter: Lattice models, gauge theories and realizations"

    David Rittenhouse Laboratory, A4

    Yizhi You, Princeton University

    Fracton phase of matter shares many features of topological order, including long-range entangled ground states and non-trivial braiding statistics. At the same time, fracton phase contains subextensive ground-state degeneracy and the restricted mobility of quasiparticle which exclude itself from the TQFT paradigm. In this talk, I start from several solvable lattice models as candidates for Fracton order. Further, I will present a theoretical framework on higher rank Chern-Simons theory in 3D as the low energy effective theory for Fracton phase.
