Abstract
Quasi-periodically driven quantum systems are predicted to exhibit quantized topological properties, in analogy with the quantized transport properties of topological insulators. We use a single nitrogen-vacancy center in diamond to experimentally study a synthetic quantum Hall effect with a two-tone drive. We measure the evolution of trajectories of two quantum states, initially prepared at nearby points in synthetic phase space. We detect the synthetic Hall effect through the predicted overlap oscillations at a quantized fundamental frequency proportional to the Chern number, which characterizes the topological phases of the system. We further observe half-quantization of the Chern number at the transition between the synthetic Hall regime and the trivial regime, and the associated concentration of local Berry curvature in synthetic phase space. Our work opens up the possibility of using driven qubits to design and study higher-dimensional topological insulators and semi-metals in synthetic dimensions.

A spin strongly driven by two harmonic incommensurate drives can pump energy from one drive to the other at a quantized average rate, in close analogy with the quantum Hall effect. The pumping rate is a non-zero integer in the topological regime, while the trivial regime does not pump. The dynamical transition between the regimes is sharp in the zero-frequency limit and is characterized by a Dirac point in a synthetic band structure. We show that the pumping rate is {\em half-integer} quantized ...

The recently introduced concept of synthetic dimensions allows for the realization of higher-dimensional topological phenomena in lower-dimensional systems. In this paper, we propose a setup where synthetic dimensions arise in mesoscopic hybrid devices and discuss how they provide a natural route to topological states. We demonstrate this for the current induced into a closed one-dimensional Aharonov-Bohm ring by the interaction with a dynamic mesoscopic magnet. The quantization of the magnetic ...

Topologically nontrivial two-dimensional materials hold great promise for next-generation optoelectronic applications. However, measuring the Hall or spin-Hall response is often a challenge and practically limited to the ground state. An experimental technique for tracing the topological character in a differential fashion would provide useful insights. In this work, we show that circular dichroism angle-resolved photoelectron spectroscopy provides a powerful tool that can resolve the topologica...

The concept of synthetic dimensions has generated interest in many branches of science ranging from ultracold-atomic physics to photonics, as it provides a versatile platform for realizing effective gauge potentials and topological physics. Previous experiments have augmented the real-space dimensionality by one additional physical synthetic dimension. We endow a single ring resonator with two independent physical synthetic dimensions. Our system consists of a temporally modulated ring resonator...

Adiabatic evolution is a common strategy for manipulating quantum states and has been employed in diverse fields such as quantum simulation, computation and annealing. However, adiabatic evolution is inherently slow and therefore susceptible to decoherence. Existing methods for speeding up adiabatic evolution require complex many-body operators or are difficult to construct for multi-level systems. Using the tools of Floquet engineering, we design a scheme for high-fidelity quantum state manipul...

In the field of quantum simulation of condensed matter phenomena by artificially engineering the Hamiltonian of an atomic, molecular or optical system, the concept of synthetic dimensions has recently emerged as a powerful way to emulate phenomena such as topological phases of matter, which are now of great interest across many areas of physics. The main idea of a synthetic dimension is to couple together suitable degrees of freedom, such as a set of internal atomic states, in order to mimic the...

Recent work (PRX 7, 041008) has shown that a spin coupled to two externally supplied circularly-polarized electromagnetic modes can effectuate a topological, quantized transfer of photons from one mode to the other. Here we study the effect in the case when only one of the modes is externally provided, while the other is a dynamical quantum mechanical cavity mode. Focusing on the signatures and stability under experimentally accessible conditions, we show that the effect persists down to the few...

Few level quantum systems driven by n_\mathrm{f}incommensurate fundamental frequencies exhibit temporal analogues of non-interacting phenomena in n_\mathrm{f}spatial dimensions, a consequence of the generalisation of Floquet theory in frequency space. We organise the fundamental solutions of the frequency lattice model for n_\mathrm{f}=2into a quasi-energy band structure and show that every band is classified by an integer Chern number. In the trivial class, all bands have zero Chern nu...

Nonlocal models are ubiquitous in all branches of science and engineering, with a rapidly expanding range of mathematical and computational applications due to the ability of such models to capture effects and phenomena that traditional models cannot. While spatial nonlocalities have received considerable attention in the research community, the same cannot be said about nonlocality in time, in particular when nonlocal initial conditions are present. This paper aims at filling this gap, providin...

In this article, we develop a description of topological pumps as slow classical dynamical variables coupled by a quantum system. We discuss the cases of quantum Hall pumps, Thouless pumps, and the more recent Floquet pumps based frequency converters. This last case corresponds to a quantum topological coupling between classical modes described by action-angle variables on which we focus. We propose a realization of such a topological coupler based on a superconducting qutrit suitably driven by ...
Properties of time-periodic Hamiltonians can be exploited to increase the dephasing time of qubits and to design protected one and two-qubit gates. Recently, Huang et al. [Phys. Rev. Applied 15, 034065 (2021)] have shown that time-dependent Floquet states offer a manifold of working points with dynamical protection larger than the few usual static sweet spots. Here, we use the framework of many-mode Floquet theory to describe approaches to robustly control Floquet qubits in the presence of multi...

Current noisy intermediate-scale quantum (NISQ) devices constitute powerful platforms for analog quantum simulation. The exquisite level of control offered by state-of-the-art quantum computers make them especially promising to implement time-dependent Hamiltonians. We implement quasiperiodic driving of a single qubit in the IBM Quantum Experience and thus experimentally realize a temporal version of the half-Bernevig-Hughes-Zhang Chern insulator. Using simple error mitigation, we achieve consis...

We derive a topological classification of the steady states of d-dimensional lattice models driven by D incommensurate tones. Mapping to a unifying (d+D)-dimensional localized model in frequency space reveals anomalous localized topological phases (ALTPs) with no static analog. While the formal classification is determined by d+D, the observable signatures of each ALTP depend on the spatial dimension d. For each d, with d+D=3, we identify a quantized circulating current and corresponding topolog...

We study heating in interacting quantum many-body systems driven by random sequences with n-ultipolar correlations, corresponding to a polynomially suppressed low frequency spectrum. For n\geq 1 we find a prethermal regime, the lifetime of which grows algebraically with the driving rate, with exponent {2n+1} A simple theory based on Fermi's golden rule accounts for this behaviour. The quasiperiodic Thue-Morse sequence corresponds to the n\to \inftylimit, and accordingly exhibits an e...

The features of topological physics can manifest in a variety of physical systems in distinct ways. Periodically driven systems, with the advantage of high flexibility and controllability, provide a versatile platform to simulate many topological phenomena and may lead to novel phenomena that cannot be observed in the absence of driving. Here we investigate the influence of realistic experimental noise on the realization of a two-level system under a two-frequency drive that induces topologicall...
