Stochastic limit method and interference in quantum many-particle systems
We consider the problem of excitation energy transfer in quantum many-particle systems with a dipole interaction. The considered exciton transfer mechanism is based on quantum interference. We show that by a special choice of interaction parameters, an enhancement of the exciton transfer to a sink and suppression of the transfer to alternative sinks can be achieved. The enhancement is proportional to the number of particles in the system. We use the quantum stochastic limit method to describe the dynamics. We indicate possible applications of the proposed mechanism to quantum processes in photosynthesis.
