Time Operators and Time Crystals

24 Jun 2019  ·  Nakatsugawa K., Fujii T., Saxena A., Tanda S. ·

We investigate time operators in the context of quantum time crystals in ring systems. A generalized commutation relation called the generalized weak Weyl relation is used to derive a class of self-adjoint time operators for ring systems with a periodic time evolution: The conventional Aharonov-Bohm time operator is obtained by taking the infinite-radius limit... Then, we discuss the connection between time operators, time crystals and real-space topology. We also reveal the relationship between our time operators and a $\mathcal{PT}$-symmetric time operator. These time operators are then used to derive several energy-time uncertainty relations. read more
