Relaxation of metastable states by quantum fluctuation

S. Miyashita, K. Saito

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


An investigation for numerical method to study quantum dynamics in dissipative environments is presented, studying the resonant tunneling phenomena of the low temperature magnetization process of Mn12. It is pointed out that information of pure quantum transition can be obtained from deceptive nonadiabatic transitions due to the dissipative environments.
