Non-equilibrium Fractional Quantum Hall state of light



Mohammad Hafezi, Jacob M. Taylor


We investigate the out-of-equilibrium dynamics in strongly interacting photonic systems. Specifically, we develop a method to investigate such system when they are externally driven with a coherent photonic field and evaluate relevant physical observables such as correlation functions and we apply this method to two strongly interacting models: Bose-Hubbard and Fractional Quantum Hall. The proposed preparation and measurement scheme are most relevant and feasible for strongly interacting photonic systems.
