A holographic study on vector condensate induced by a magnetic field

Cai, Rong-Gen; He, Song; Li, Li; Li, Li-FangSubjects: Geosciences >> Space Physics

We study a holographic model with vector condensate by coupling the anti-de Sitter gravity to an Abelian gauge field and a charged vector field in (3 + 1) dimensional spacetime. In this model there exists a non-minimal coupling of the vector field to the gauge field. We find that there is a critical temperature below which the charged vector condenses via a second order phase transition. The DC conductivity becomes infinite and the AC conductivity develops a gap in the condensed phase. We study the effect of a background magnetic field on the system. It is found that the background magnetic field can induce the condensate of the vector field even in the case without chemical potential/charge density. In the case with non-vanishing charge density, the transition temperature raises with the applied magnetic field, and the condensate of the charged vector operator forms a vortex lattice structure in the spatial directions perpendicular to the magnetic field. |

Some aspects of QGP phase in a hQCD model

We continue to study the holographic QCD (hQCD) model, proposed in a previous paper, in an Einstein-Maxwell-Dilaton (EMD) system. In this paper we discuss some aspects of quark gluon plasma (QGP) in the hQCD model, such as drag force, jet quenching parameter and screening length. The results turn out to be consistent with those as expected in QCD qualitatively. By calculating free energy of the background black hole solution, we find that there exists a phase transition between small black hole and large black hole when chemical potential it is less than the critical one pc, and the phase transition is absent when chemical potential is beyond the critical one. |

Entanglement entropy and Wilson loop in Stuckelberg holographic insulator/superconductor model

Cai, Rong-Gen; He, Song; Li, Li; Li, Li-FangSubjects: Physics >> The Physics of Elementary Particles and Fields

We study the behaviors of entanglement entropy and vacuum expectation value of Wilson loop in the Stuckelberg holographic insulator/superconductor model. This model has rich phase structures depending on model parameters. Both the entanglement entropy for a strip geometry and the heavy quark potential from the Wilson loop show that there exists a "confinement/deconfinement phase transition. In addition, we find that the non-monotonic behavior of the entanglement entropy with respect to chemical potential is universal in this model. The pseudo potential from the spatial Wilson loop also has a similar non-monotonic behavior. It turns out that the entanglement entropy and Wilson loop are good probes to study the properties of the holographic superconductor phase transition. |

Holographic entanglement entropy in insulator/superconductor transition

Cai, Rong-Gen; He, Song; Li, Li; Zhang, Yun-LongSubjects: Physics >> The Physics of Elementary Particles and Fields

We investigate the behaviors of entanglement entropy in the holographical insulator/superconductor phase transition. We calculate the holographic entanglement entropy for two kinds of geometry configurations in a completely back-reacted gravitational background describing the insulator/superconductor phase transition. The non-monotonic behavior of the entanglement entropy is found in tins system. In the belt geometry case, there exist four phases characterized by the chemical potential and belt width. |
