报告题目: Self-localized orbital induced flat band localization
报告人: 高锦华 副教授（华中科技大学）
Recently, flat bands in lattice have drawn lots of interest in the field of condensed matter physics. On one hand, kinetic energy is quenched, so that tiny interaction can induce electron correlated states. On the other hand, it is suggested that topological nontrivial flat band can give rise to fractional quantum hall effect without magnetic field. Here, we propose a new interference induced wave localization mechanism, which can produce perfect flat bands in periodic system, and is beyond the scope of tight binding lattice model. First, we numerically demonstrate that electron flat bands can arise in a quasi one dimensional electron waveguide with a designed confined potential. Then, we propose the concept of self-localized orbital, which is reason for the flat bands in the electron waveguide. Finally, we show that self-localized orbital induced flat band is a general phenomenon of wave, which can arise is any wave systems with proper boundary condition. We design a metallic waveguide array, and show that similar flat band localization can be readily realized and observed for electromagnetic wave. The advantages of this kind of flat band are: (1) perfect flat bands can be achieved with this scheme; (2) the self-localized orbital, as well as the flat band structures, are highly controllable by adjusting the local geometry of the confinement potential.
