Single-particle transport

This exercise on single particle transport asks students to explore what happens when one tries to move a particle in the ground state of a potential from one location to another (in 1D). This is an excellent introduction to quantum control. Note that we also have further introductory material on numerical quantum computing and quantum control available upon request.

The flow files for this exercise can be found in a zip folder in the link below. We have also developed a nice introduction to numerical quantum calculations and quantum optimal control that you can find here.

Key words and phrases: Quantum control, transport in harmonic and Gaussian wells, time evolution
