Interaction induced quasi-particle spectrum and the origin of the pinning peak in holography

It is often said that interactions destroy the particle nature of excitations. We report that, in holographic theory adding interaction term can create a new quasi particle spectrum, on the contrary... We show this by calculating the optical conductivity in a model with exact background solution and finding a new quasi-particle spectrum. We argue that such new poles are generic consequence of any non-minimal interaction like Chern-Simon term. The interaction driven metal-insulator transition and the pinning effect in holography are examples of this phenomena. We also point out that the origin of the pinning peak is the vortex formation by the anomalous magnetic moment induced by the interaction term. read more
