Spin transitions in time-dependent regular and random magnetic fields Academic Article uri icon


  • We study the transition between Zeeman levels of an arbitrary spin placed into a regular time-dependent magnetic field and a random field with the Gaussian distribution. One component of the regular field changes its sign at some moment of time, whereas another component does not change substantially. The noise is assumed to be fast. In this assumption we find analytically the ensemble average of the spin density matrix and its fluctuations. 2004 The American Physical Society.
