Superdiffusive magnetization transport in the XX spin chain with non-local dephasing
We study a recently discussed XX spin chain with non-local dephasing [arXiv:2310.03069] in a steady-state boundary-driven setting, confirming superdiffusive magnetization transport in the thermodynamic limit. The emergence of superdiffusion is rather interesting as the Lindblad operators causing it are a coherent sum of two terms, each of which would separately cause diffusion. One therefore has a quantum phenomenon where a coherent sum of two diffusive terms results in superdiffusion. We also study perturbations of the superdiffusive model, finding that breaking the exact form of dissipators, as well as adding interactions to the XX chain, results in superdiffusion changing into diffusion.
