Scaling laws of the Kondo problem at finite frequency
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2018
Driving a quantum system at finite frequency allows one to explore its dynamics. This has become a well-mastered resource for controlling the quantum state of two-level systems in the context of quantum information processing. However, this can also be of fundamental interest, especially with many-body systems which display an intricate finite-frequency behavior. In condensed matter, the Kondo effect epitomizes strong electronic correlations, but the study of its dynamics and the related scaling laws has remained elusive so far. Here, we fill this gap by studying a carbon-nanotube-based Kondo quantum dot at half filling driven by a microwave signal. Our findings not only confirm long-standing theoretical predictions but also allow us to establish a simple ansatz for the scaling laws on the Kondo problem at finite frequency. More generally, our technique opens a path for understanding the dynamics of complex quantum dot circuits in the context of quantum simulation of strongly correlated electron fluids.
