Acceleration of adiabatic quantum dynamics in electromagnetic fields
Abstract
We show a method to accelerate quantum adiabatic dynamics of wave functions under electromagnetic field (EMF) by developing the preceding theory [Masuda and Nakamura, Proc. R. Soc. London Ser. A 466, 1135 (2010)]. Treating the orbital dynamics of a charged particle in EMF, we derive the driving field which accelerates quantum adiabatic dynamics in order to obtain the final adiabatic states in any desired short time. The scheme is consolidated by describing a way to overcome possible singularities in both the additional phase and driving potential due to nodes proper to wave functions under EMF. As explicit examples, we exhibit the fast forward of adiabatic squeezing and transport of excited Landau states with nonzero angular momentum, obtaining the result consistent with the transitionless quantum driving applied to the orbital dynamics in EMF.

We present an analytical and numerical study of the surfatron acceleration of nonrelativistic charged particles by electromagnetic waves. The acceleration is caused by capture of particles into resonance with one of the waves. We investigate capture for systems with one or two waves and provide conditions under which the obtained results can be applied to systems with more than two waves. In the case of a single wave, the once captured particles never leave the resonance and their velocity grows linearly with time. However, if there are two waves in the system, the upper bound of the energy gain maymore »

Nonadiabatic molecular dynamics with complex quantum trajectories. II. The adiabatic representation
We present a complex quantum trajectory method for treating nonadiabatic dynamics. Each trajectory evolves classically on a single electronic surface but with complex position and momentum. The equations of motion are derived directly from the timedependent Schroedinger equation, and the population exchange arises naturally from amplitudetransfer terms. In this paper the equations of motion are derived in the adiabatic representation to complement our work in the diabatic representation [N. Zamstein and D. J. Tannor, J. Chem. Phys. 137, 22A517 (2012)]. We apply our method to two benchmark models introduced by John Tully [J. Chem. Phys. 93, 1061 (1990)], and getmore » 
Communication: Adiabatic and nonadiabatic electronnuclear motion: Quantum and classical dynamics
Using a model for coupled electronicnuclear motion we investigate the range from negligible to strong nonadiabatic coupling. In the adiabatic case, the quantum dynamics proceeds in a single electronic state, whereas for strong coupling a complete transition between two adiabatic electronic states takes place. It is shown that in all coupling regimes the shorttime wavepacket dynamics can be described using ensembles of classical trajectories in the phase space spanned by electronic and nuclear degrees of freedom. We thus provide an example which documents that the quantum concept of nonadiabatic transitions is not necessarily needed if electronic and nuclear motion ismore » 
Excited state nonadiabatic dynamics of pyrrole: A timeresolved photoelectron spectroscopy and quantum dynamics study
The dynamics of pyrrole excited at wavelengths in the range 242217 nm are studied using a combination of timeresolved photoelectron spectroscopy and wavepacket propagations performed using the multiconfigurational timedependent Hartree method. Excitation close to the origin of pyrrole’s electronic spectrum, at 242 and 236 nm, is found to result in an ultrafast decay of the system from the ionization window on a single timescale of less than 20 fs. This behaviour is explained fully by assuming the system to be excited to the A{sub 2}(πσ{sup ∗}) state, in accord with previous experimental and theoretical studies. Excitation at shorter wavelengths hasmore » 
Excited state nonadiabatic dynamics of Nmethylpyrrole: A timeresolved photoelectron spectroscopy and quantum dynamics study
The dynamics of Nmethylpyrrole following excitation at wavelengths in the range 241.5217.0 nm were studied using a combination of timeresolved photoelectron spectroscopy (TRPES), ab initio quantum dynamics calculations using the multilayer multiconfigurational timedependent Hartree method, as well as highlevel photoionization cross section calculations. Excitation at 241.5 and 236.2 nm results in population of the A{sub 2}(πσ{sup ∗}) state, in agreement with previous studies. Excitation at 217.0 nm prepares the previously neglected B{sub 1}(π3p{sub y}) Rydberg state, followed by prompt internal conversion to the A{sub 2}(πσ{sup ∗}) state. In contrast with the photoinduced dynamics of pyrrole, the lifetime of the wavepacketmore »
