Driven quantum tunneling

  title={Driven quantum tunneling},
  author={Milena Grifoni and Peter H{\"a}nggi},
A contemporary review on the behavior of driven tunneling in quantum systems is presented. Diverse phenomena, such as control of tunneling, higher harmonic generation, manipulation of the population dynamics and the interplay between the driven tunneling dynamics and dissipative effects are discussed. In the presence of strong driving fields or ultrafast processes, well-established approximations such as perturbation theory or the rotating wave approximation have to be abandoned. A variety of… CONTINUE READING
