Exploiting chaos for quantum control

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The field of Quantum Chaos is referred to as the study of quantum behaviors of systems whose corresponding classical dynamics are chaotic, or study of quantum manifestations of classical chaos. Equivalently, it means that quantum behaviors depend on the nature of the classical dynamics, implying that classical chaos can be used to control or manipulate quantum behaviors. We discuss two examples here: using transient chaos to control quantum transport in nanoscale systems and exploiting chaos to regularize relativistic quantum tunneling dynamics in Dirac fermion and graphene systems.
