Fielddriven geometrical phases in a timeperiodic quantum system
(2009) In Physical Review B (Condensed Matter and Materials Physics) 79(20). Abstract
 We apply Floquet theory to explore the geometry of the Hilbert space under the influence of a timeperiodic field. The geometrical phase is found to be induced by fielddriven hybridizations when the photon energy of the driving field is close to the transition energies of the states of a quantum system. The phases of two hybridized states are phase locked to each other. We show that the geometrical phase is in general related to the Rabi frequency of the hybrid states. We also show that when the photon energy is equal to the transition energy of two states the geometrical phase acquired by each state is given exactly by an integer multiple of pi, independent of the strength of the driving field. We illustrate the derived generic... (More)

We also show that when the photon energy is equal to the transition energy of two states the geometrical phase acquired by each state is given exactly by an integer multiple of pi, independent of the strength of the driving field. We illustrate the derived generic properties of the geometric phase with an experimentally realizable quantumwire system. It is shown that the interference between conductance channels in the wire presents a way to identify the geometrical phase. (Less)
