We consider a driven open system whose evolution is described by a Lindbladian. The Lindbladian is assumed to be dephasing and its Hamiltonian part to be given by the Landau–Zener Hamiltonian. We derive a formula for the transition probability which, unlike previous results, extends the Landau–Zener formula to open systems.

We consider a time-dependent small quantum system weakly coupled to an environment, whose effective dynamics we address by means of a Lindblad equation. We assume the Hamiltonian part of the

Reservoir-engineering shortcuts to adiabaticity

We propose a protocol that achieves fast adiabatic transfer between two orthogonal states of a qubit by coupling with an ancilla. The qubit undergoes Landau-Zener dynamics, whereas the coupling

Adiabatic Transitions in a Two-Level System Coupled to a Free Boson Reservoir

We consider a time-dependent two-level quantum system interacting with a free Boson reservoir. The coupling is energy conserving and depends slowly on time, as does the system Hamiltonian, with a



Landau-Zener Tunneling for Dephasing Lindblad Evolutions

We consider a family of time-dependent dephasing Lindblad generators which model the monitoring of the instantaneous Hamiltonian of a system by a Markovian bath. In this family the time dependence of

Dephasing of interference in Landau-Zener transitions.

A phase-uncertainty factor for a general coupling to an environment is derived, and the enhancement of the asymptotic transition probability due to this phase uncertainty is demonstrated.

Landau-Zener Formulae from Adiabatic Transition Histories

We use recent results on precise coupling terms in the optimal supera- diabatic basis in order to determine exponentially small transition probabilities in the adiabatic limit of time-dependent

Fast noise in the Landau-Zener theory

We study the influence of a fast noise on Landau-Zener transitions. We demonstrate that a fast colored noise much weaker than the conventional white noise can produce transitions itself or can change

Adiabatic Response for Lindblad Dynamics

We study the adiabatic response of open systems governed by Lindblad evolutions. In such systems, there is an ambiguity in the assignment of observables to fluxes (rates) such as velocities and

Nonadiabatic dynamics of a slowly driven dissipative two-level system

We study the dynamics of a two-level system described by a slowly varying Hamiltonian and weakly coupled to the Ohmic environment. We follow the Bloch-Redfield perturbative approach to include the

The way in which the transition amplitude to an initially unoccupied state increases to its exponentially small final value is studied in detail in the adiabatic approximation, for a 2-state quantum

Landau-Zener problem with decay and dephasing

Two aspects of the classic two-level Landau--Zener (LZ) problem are considered. First, we address the LZ problem when one or both levels decay, i.e., $\veps_j(t) \to \veps_j(t)-i \Gamma_j/2$. We find
