Decoherence in resonantly driven bistable systemsSigmund Kohler and Peter Hänggi
in Quantum Information Processing, edited by T. Beth and G. Leuchs (Wiley-VCH, Berlin, 2003), p.146-157
We study dissipative tunneling in a double well potential that is driven close to a resonance between the lowest tunnel doublet and a singlet. While the coherent dynamics can be described well within a three-level approximation, dissipative transitions to levels outside the singlet and the doublet may play a crucial role. Moreover, such transitions can enhance the entropy production significantly.
