A simple approach to the LandauZener formula
Abstract
The LandauZener formula provides the probability of nonadiabatic transitions occurring when two energy levels are swept through an avoided crossing. The formula is derived here in a simple calculation that emphasizes the physics responsible for nonadiabatic population transfer.
