Adiabatic Passage through Chaos

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We study the process of nonlinear stimulated Raman adiabatic passage within a classical mean-field framework. Depending on the sign of interaction, the breakdown of adiabaticity in the interacting nonintegrable system is not related to bifurcations in the energy landscape, but rather to the emergence of quasistochastic motion that drains the followed quasistationary state. Consequently, faster sweep rate, rather than quasistatic variation of parameters, is better for adiabaticity.
