Floquet states have been used to describe the impact of periodic driving on lattice systems, either using a tight-binding model, or by using a continuum model where a Kronig-Penney-like description has been used to model spatially periodic systems in one dimension. A number of these studies have focused on finite systems, and results from these studies are distinct from those of infinite lattice systems as a consequence of boundary effects. In the case of a finite system, there remains a… 


Floquet-Bloch theory and topology in periodically driven lattices.
It is demonstrated that nonadiabaticity drives a transition from topological invariants defined in D+1 to D dimensions, which has potential applications in topological states of matter and nonadiABatic topological quantum computation, predicting novel outcomes for future experiments.
In this thesis we introduce a new quantity which we call the dynamic fidelity susceptibility (DFS). We show that it is relevant to out-of-equilibrium dynamics in many-particle quantum systems, taking
Tunneling in a periodically driven bistable system
The influence of periodic driving on coherent tunneling is investigated, using a quartic double-well potential in a monochromatic external filed as a working example. Extensive numerical studies of
Coherent destruction of tunneling in a lattice array with a controllable boundary
We have investigated how the dynamics of a quantum particle initially localized in the left boundary site under periodic driving can be manipulated via control of the right boundary site of a lattice
Dynamical control of matter-wave tunneling in periodic potentials.
Measurements of dynamical suppression of interwell tunneling of a Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC) in a strongly driven optical lattice show that the strong shaking does not destroy the phase coherence of the BEC, opening up the possibility of realizing quantum phase transitions by using the shaking strength as the control parameter.
Location of crossings in the Floquet spectrum of a driven two-level system
The calculation of the Floquet quasi-energies of a system driven by a time-periodic field is an efficient way to understand its dynamics. In particular, the phenomenon of dynamical localization can
Quantum Mechanics of Electrons in Crystal Lattices
Introduction .–Through the work of Bloch our understanding of the behaviour of electrons in crystal lattices has been much advanced. The principal idea of Bloch’s theory is the assumption that the
Driven quantum tunneling
Abstract 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
Localization in a Driven Two-Level Dynamics
A periodically driven two-state dynamics, being analysed within the Floquet formalism, exhibits localization of the amplitude dynamics in an infinite frequency range, extending from the bare tunnel
Numerical matrix method for quantum periodic potentials
A numerical matrix methodology is applied to quantum problems with periodic potentials. The procedure consists essentially in replacing the true potential by an alternative one, restricted by an
