Abstract

In this work, we introduce and study "hybrid" fracton orders, especially though a family of exactly solvable models. The hybrid fracton orders exhibit both the phenomenology of a conventional 3d topological ordered phase and a fracton phase. There are simple yet non-trivial fusion and braiding between the excitations between the two kinds. One example is the hybrid order of the Z2 topological order with the Z2 Xcube order, in which the fracton excitations fuse into the toric code charge, and in turn, the flux loop of the toric code can fuse into various lineon excitations. In the same way there is a hybrid ordered phase of Haah's code and the 3d toric code. Proliferating certain gapped excitations in these hybrid orders can drive a phase transition into either a fracton order or a conventional 3d topological phase.
