Defect production in quench from a current-carrying non-equilibrium state

We consider the defect production of a quantum system, initially prepared in a current-carrying non-equilibrium state, during its unitary driving through a quantum critical point. At low values of the initial current, the quantum Kibble–Zurek scaling for the production of defects is recovered. However, at large values of the initial current, i.e. very far from an initial equilibrium situation, a universal scaling of the defect production is obtained which shows an algebraic dependence with respect to the initial current value. These scaling predictions are demonstrated by the exactly solvable Ising quantum chain, where the current-carrying state is selected through the imposition of a Dzyaloshinskii–Moriya interaction term.
