Applications of quantum integrable systems
O.A. Castro-Alvaredo, A. Fring
We present two applications of quantum integrable systems. First, we predict that it is possible to generate high harmonics from solid state devices by demonstrating that the emission spectrum of a minimally coupled laser field of frequency $omega$ to an impurity system of a quantum wire, contains multiples of the incoming frequency. Second, by evaluating expressions for the conductance in the high temperature regime we show that the characteristic 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.
