Semiclassical theory of mesoscopic quantum systems

This ebook describes manifestations of classical dynamics and chaos within the quantum homes of mesoscopic platforms. over the last twenty years mesoscopic physics has developed right into a swiftly progressing and intriguing interdisciplinary box of physics. the 1st a part of the publication bargains with integrable and chaotic classical dynamics with specific emphasis at the semiclassical description of spectral correlations, thermodynamic houses and linear reaction capabilities.

The term in Eq. 3-10 proportional to nh, the pumber of ~ h o t o n sa l r u r s s emitted. is called stimulated emission. The term that remains when nbm= 0 . I s We consider spontaneous emission first. Stimulated emission may be treated together with absorption. . To f the excited state of an atom against spontaneous emission of a photon, we set n,, = 0 and sum Eq. 3-10 over all of the k's *and a's that the emitted photon can have. That is, Now we let the volume of the box in which the electromagnetic field is quantized become infinite.

The interaction i s obtained by the prescription Making this replacement in Eq, 4-29 and adding the Hamiltonians give the totaI Harniltonian 'H p -t- Hrad + where is the particle Hamiltonian, is the Hamiltonian of the radiation field, and Interaction of Quantized Fields 55 is the interaction Hamiltonian. As before, we can divide HI into a part H' proportional to A and a part H" proportional to Aa. Expanding A and y in terms of a,, and 6, gives (5-6a) HI = H' H" + where + M(-k,, GI? 4 2 , g2, n, n')a$,az2,,) M(k, a, n, n') = ( ~ ~ ~ ~ d 3 T W ~ imc [ - l i e i k ' x u k ~(5-6d) a ~ ] y m .

According to Eq. 4-3, y(x, t ) is a linear combination of the destruction operators b,. We may interpret it as an operator which destroys a particle at the position x at the time t . Similarly, y+(x, t) is a linear combination of the creation operators b:. We may interpret it as an operator which creates a particle at the position x at the time t. The commutation relations for y and yrt. may be found from those for b, and b:. Thus = ):yn(x)y,l(x') = S(X n - x') (4-26) where Eqs. 4-7 and 4-1 1 and the completeness relation for the set of functions y, has been used.
