Controllability of a quantum particle in a moving potential well. (English) Zbl 1188.93017
Summary: We consider a nonrelativistic charged particle in a 1D moving potential well. This quantum system is subject to a control, which is the acceleration of the well. It is represented by a wave function solution of a Schrödinger equation, the position of the well together with its velocity. We prove the following controllability result for this bilinear control system: given \(\psi_{0}\) close enough to an eigenstate and \(\psi_{f}\) close enough to another eigenstate, the wave function can be moved exactly from \(\psi_{0}\) to \(\psi_{f}\) in finite time. Moreover, we can control the position and the velocity of the well. Our proof uses moment theory, a Nash–Moser implicit function theorem, the return method and expansion to the second order.
