Chaos and two-level dynamics of the atomtronic quantum interference device

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We study the atomtronic quantum interference device employing a semiclassical perspective. We consider an M site ring that is described by the Bose-Hubbard Hamiltonian. Coherent Rabi oscillations in the flow of the current are feasible, with an enhanced frequency due to chaos-assisted tunneling. We highlight the consequences of introducing a weak-link into the circuit. In the latter context we clarify the phase-space considerations that are involved in setting up an effective 'systems plus bath' description in terms of Josephson-Caldeira-Leggett Hamiltonian.
