phase retrapping in aφjosephson junction onset of the Butterfly Effect
Physical Review B, 2016CoAuthors: Rosina Menditto, R Kleiner, D Koelle, H Sickinger, Martin Weides, H Kohlstedt, M žonda, T Novotný, E GoldobinAbstract:We investigate experimentally the retrapping of the phase in a

the phase will be trapped upon return from a finite voltage state during quasistatic decrease of the bias current (tilt of the potential). By measuring the relative population of two peaks in escape histograms, we determine the probability of phase trapping in the

wells for different temperatures. Our experimental results agree qualitatively with theoretical predictions. In particular, we observe an onset of the Butterfly Effect with an oscillating probability of trapping. Unexpectedly, this probability saturates at a value different from 50% at low temperatures. 
phase retrapping in a pointlike φ josephson junction the Butterfly Effect
Physical Review Letters, 2013CoAuthors: E Goldobin, R Kleiner, D Koelle, R G MintsAbstract:: We consider a φ Josephson junction, which has a bistable zerovoltage state with the stationary phases ψ = ±φ. In the nonzero voltage state the phase “moves” viscously along a tilted periodic doublewell potential. When the tilting is reduced quasistatically, the phase is retrapped in one of the potential wells. We study the viscous phase dynamics to determine in which well (φ or +φ) the phase is retrapped for a given damping, when the junction returns from the finitevoltage state back to the zerovoltage state. In the limit of low damping, the φ Josephson junction exhibits a Butterfly Effectextreme sensitivity of the destination well on damping. This leads to an impossibility to predict the destination well.

holographic Butterfly Effect at quantum critical points
Journal of High Energy Physics, 2017CoAuthors: Yi Ling, Jianpin WuAbstract:When the Lyapunov exponent λL in a quantum chaotic system saturates the bound λL ≤ 2πk
B
T , it is proposed that this system has a holographic dual described by a gravity theory. In particular, the Butterfly Effect as a prominent phenomenon of chaos can ubiquitously exist in a black hole system characterized by a shockwave solution near the horizon. In this paper we propose that the Butterfly velocity can be used to diagnose quantum phase transition (QPT) in holographic theories. We provide evidences for this proposal with an anisotropic holographic model exhibiting metalinsulator transitions (MIT), in which the derivatives of the Butterfly velocity with respect to system parameters characterizes quantum critical points (QCP) with local extremes in zero temperature limit. We also point out that this proposal can be tested by experiments in the light of recent progress on the measurement of outoftimeorder correlation function (OTOC). 
holographic Butterfly Effect and diffusion in quantum critical region
Journal of High Energy Physics, 2017CoAuthors: Yi Ling, Zhuoyu XianAbstract:We investigate the Butterfly Effect and charge diffusion near the quantum phase transition in holographic approach. We argue that their criticality is controlled by the holographic scaling geometry with deformations induced by a relevant operator at finite temperature. Specifically, in the quantum critical region controlled by a single fixed point, the Butterfly velocity decreases when deviating from the critical point. While, in the noncritical region, the behavior of the Butterfly velocity depends on the specific phase at low temperature. Moreover, in the holographic BerezinskiiKosterlitzThouless transition, the universal behavior of the Butterfly velocity is absent. Finally, the tendency of our holographic results matches with the numerical results of BoseHubbard model. A comparison between our result and that in the O(N ) nonlinear sigma model is also given.

note on the Butterfly Effect in holographic superconductor models
Physics Letters B, 2017CoAuthors: Yi Ling, Jianpin WuAbstract:In this note we remark that the Butterfly Effect can be used to diagnose the phase transition of superconductivity in a holographic framework. Specifically, we compute the Butterfly velocity in a charged black hole background as well as anisotropic backgrounds with Qlattice structure. In both cases we find its derivative to the temperature is discontinuous at critical points. We also propose that the Butterfly velocity can signalize the occurrence of thermal phase transition in general holographic models.
