Abstract

Long-range entangled mixed states are exotic many-body systems that exhibit intrinsically quantum phenomena despite extensive classical fluctuations. In the first part of the talk, I will show how they can be efficiently prepared with measurements and unitary feedback conditioned on the measurement outcome. For example, symmetry-protected topological phases can be universally converted into mixed states with long-range entanglement, and certain gapped topological states such as Chern insulators can be converted into mixed states with critical correlations in the bulk. In the second part of the talk, I will discuss how decoherence can drive interesting mixed-state entanglement transitions. By focusing on the toric codes in various space dimensions subject to certain types of decoherence, I will present the exact results of entanglement negativity, from which the universality class of entanglement transitions can be completely characterized.
