Applications of quantum integrable systems

Castro-Alvaredo, O. & Fring, A. (2004). Applications of quantum integrable systems. International Journal of Modern Physics A (IJMPA), 19(S2), pp. 92-116. doi: 10.1142/S0217751X04020336


We present two applications of quantum integrable systems. First, we predict that it is possible to generate high harmonics from solid state devices by demostrating that the emission spectrum for a minimally coupled laser field of frequency $\omega$ to an impurity system of a quantum wire, contains multiples of the incoming frequency. Second, evaluating expressions for the conductance in the high temperature regime we show that the caracteristic filling fractions of the Jain sequence, which occur in the fractional quantum Hall effect, can be obtained from quantum wires which are described by minimal affine Toda field theories.
