Nonequilibrium physics of quantum many-body systems
We are interested in nonequilibrium physics of quantum many-body systems and statistical mechanics. The aim is to realize a new order or new physical property by driving quantum systems out of equilibrium. At first sight, it sounds unlikely to happen because energy injected by an external drive would turn into heat, which would destroy all the interesting properties of quantum many-body systems that might emerge at low energies. However, contrary to our intuition, recent studies have revealed various possibilities that novel states of matter do emerge out of equilibrium. We are trying to understand their mechanism and explore the frontier of nonequilibrium physics.
