Experiments on quantum wells in tilted fields have stimulated several groups to investigate semiclassical theories for the current fluctuations. As a result, there is now a sort of “Zoo” of different types of trajectories (Periodic Orbits, Normal Orbits, Central Closed Orbits, Ghost Periodic Orbits, Saddle Orbits, Minimal Orbits) which have all been used to analyse these experimental spectra. Here we review briefly the semiclassical descriptions for this system and discuss which types of… Expand
Coherence in the Ferroelectric A3ClO (A = Li, Na) Family of Electrolytes
TLDR
By recurring to ab initio molecular dynamics, it was demonstrated the tendency of the Li3ClO, Li2.92Ba0.04ClO ferroelectric-electrolytes to keep phonon oscillation coherence for a short lapse of time in ps. Expand
