Adiabatic quantum pumping refers to particle transport induced by adiabatic sweeping of system parameters. The original motivation to study this phenomenon dates back to Thouless’s seminal work, in which adiabatic particle transport was connected with topological properties of Bloch bands. In recent years, adiabatic pumping has retrieved its attractiveness due to the explosive development in topological phases of matter, and the construction of versatile and flexible quantum simulators like optical and photonic lattices. There, adiabatic pumps play an essential role in demonstrating transport features of various equilibrium and non-equilibrium topological states of matter.
of matter. In this thesis, we will investigate adiabatic pumping in several periodically driven and open quantum systems. (Abstract shortened by UMI.)
