Abstract

Monitored quantum circuits, composed of local unitary operators and projective measurements, have recently emerged as a rich setting for studying non-equilibrium quantum dynamics. In such systems, sufficient densities of measurements can protect a highly-monitored steady state phase with area law entanglement. Furthermore, it has been shown that such area law phases can host a measurement-protected Ising ferromagnetic order. However, it is not yet known whether such measurement-protected order is a generic phenomenon or whether it relies on the discrete Ising symmetry. To begin answering this question, we introduce a circuit model with continuous symmetry where ferromagnetic order arises in the steady state. Notably, our model requires feedback based on measurement results in order to generate this ferromagnetic order
