Quantum signatures of nonlinear resonances in mesoscopic systems: Efficient extension of localized wave functions
Abstract
We investigate the quantum signatures of classical nonlinear resonances by making the analytic connection between the quantum wave functions and the classical periodic orbits for the uncoupled systems. It is found that the highly efficient extension of the localized coherent states within the classical caustics is an intriguing phenomenon in mesoscopic systems with nonlinear resonances. With the theoretical analysis, we experimentally demonstrate that the laser resonator with an intracavity saturable absorber can be employed to visualize the wave patterns analogous to the quantum wave functions associated with Fermi resonance.

Dynamically localized systems: Exponential sensitivity of entanglement and efficient quantum simulations
We study the pairwise entanglement present in a quantum computer that simulates a dynamically localized system. We show that the concurrence is exponentially sensitive to changes in the Hamiltonian of the simulated system. Moreover, concurrence is exponentially sensitive to the 'logic' position of the qubits chosen. These sensitivities could be experimentally checked efficiently by means of quantum simulations with less than 10 qubits. We also show that the feasibility of efficient quantum simulations is deeply connected to the dynamical regime of the simulated system. 
Time dependence, complex scaling, and the calculation of resonances in manyelectron systems. [Wave functions, energies, widths]
The theory deals with certain aspects of the formal properties of atomic and molecular highly excited nonstationary states and the problem of calculating their wave functions, energies, and widths. The conceptual framework is a decay theory based on the consistent definition and calculation of the t = 0 localized state, vertical bar psi/sub 0/>. Given this framework, the following topics are treated: The variational calculation of psi/sub 0/ and E/sub 0/ using a previously published theory that generalized the projection operator approach to manyelectron systems. The exact definition of the resonance energy. The possibility of bound states in the continuum.more » 
Quantum nonlinear resonance and quantum chaos in AharonovBohm oscillations in mesoscopic semiconductor rings
We consider AharonovBohm oscillations in a mesoscopic semiconductor ring threaded by both a constant magnetic flux and a timedependent, resonant magnetic field with one or two frequencies. Working in the ballistic regime, we establish that the theory of {open_quotes}quantum nonlinear resonance{close_quotes} applies, and thus that this system represents a possible solidstate realization of {open_quotes}quantum nonlinear resonance{close_quotes} and {open_quotes}quantum chaos.{close_quotes} In particular, we investigate the behavior of the timeaveraged electron energy at zero temperature in the regimes of (i) an isolated quantum nonlinear resonance and (ii) the transition to quantum chaos, when two quantum nonlinear resonances overlap. The timeaveraged energy exhibitsmore »
