Strongly Correlated Electrons Driven by an Electric Field

Camille Aron, Rutgers University

Strongly correlated many-body systems driven out of equilibrium are attracting a lot of interest, motivated by new experimental realizations in non-linear transport in devices, heterostructures and cold atoms. Theoretically, the challenge is to understand the interplay between the strong correlation and the finite drive. In this talk, I will focus on the Hubbard model driven by a constant electric field. First, I will introduce some theoretical tools to address the non-equilibrium steady states, bypassing the transient dynamics. At the dynamical mean-field level, I will describe how the lattice problem can be self-consistently mapped to a multi-lead Anderson impurity model. Afterwards, I will discuss the fate of Mott physics in the non-linear regime by detailing two key far-from-equilibrium phenomena: 

– the dimensional crossover towards a lower dimensional equilibrium system;
– the dielectric breakdown of the Mott insulator.
