Recent work has analyzed how deformations due to the insertion of a defect in a flat hexagonal lattice affect the ground state structure of an interacting fermion field theory. Such modifications result in an increase of the order parameter in the vicinity of the defect and can be explained by a kirigami effect, that is the combined effect of the curvature, locally introduced by the deformation in the lattice tessellation, and of a synthetic gauge field induced by the boundary conditions along the cut, performed to introduce the defect. In this work, we extend the formalism and previous results to include finite temperature effects.
