abstract

  • Different ways to accelerate adiabatic processes in cold atom physics and atomic state preparation are reviewed. The invariant-based inverse engineering approach is applied to trap expansions and contractions, and to atomic transport. Berry's Hamiltonian is applied to produce fast versions of adiabatic passage methods.
