Rate of energy absorption for a driven chaotic cavity (2000) ()
We consider the response of a chaotic cavity in d dimensions to periodic
driving. We are motivated by older studies of onebody dissipation in nuclei,
and also by anticipated mesoscopic applications. For calculating the rate of
energy absorption due to timedependent deformation of the confining potential,
we introduce an improved version of the wall formula. Our formulation takes
into account that a special class of deformations causes no heating in the
zerofrequency limit. We also derive a mesoscopic version of the Drude formula,
and explain that it can be regarded as a special example of our calculations.
Specifically we consider a quantum dot driven by electromotive force which is
induced by a timedependent homogeneous magnetic field.
