We theoretically investigate basic properties of nonequilibrium steady states of periodically-driven open quantum systems based on the full solution of the Maxwell–Bloch equation. In a resonant driving condition, we find that the transverse relaxation, also known as decoherence, significantly destructs the formation of Floquet states while the longitudinal relaxation does not directly affect it. Furthermore, by evaluating the quasienergy spectrum of the nonequilibrium steady states, we…

Controlled Population of Floquet-Bloch States via Coupling to Bose and Fermi Baths

External driving is emerging as a promising tool for exploring new phases in quantum systems. The intrinsically non-equilibrium states that result, however, are challenging to describe and control.

Effective Floquet–Gibbs states for dissipative quantum systems

A periodically driven quantum system, when coupled to a heat bath, relaxes to a non-equilibrium asymptotic state. In the general situation, the retrieval of this asymptotic state presents a rather

When a periodically modulated many-body quantum system is weakly coupled to an environment, the combined action of these temporal modulations and dissipation steers the system towards a state

Driven Open Quantum Systems and Floquet Stroboscopic Dynamics.

TLDR
An interpretation of the problem of system-bath dynamics under the effect of high-frequency driving in terms of the stroboscopic evolution of a family of observables under the influence of an effective static Hamiltonian is proposed, which constitutes a flexible simulation procedure of nontrivial Hamiltonians.

Discontinuities in Driven Spin-Boson Systems due to Coherent Destruction of Tunneling: Breakdown of the Floquet-Gibbs Distribution.

TLDR
This work investigates the stationary state of an ac-driven system when the driving and dissipation are noncommutative, and shows that the probability distribution can exhibit population inversion and discontinuities, i.e., jumps, for parameters at which coherent destruction of tunneling takes place.

TLDR
It is proved that, even when the external field is strong, the probability distribution of a steady state of a periodically driven system coupled to a thermal bath is independent of the detailed nature of the thermal bath.
