We report a new family of time-dependent single-qubit radiation fields for which the correspondent evolution operator can be disentangled in an exact way via the Wei–Norman formalism. Such fields are characterized in terms of the Mathieu functions. We show that the regions of stability of the Mathieu functions determine the nature of the driving fields: For parameters in the stable region, the fields are oscillating, being able to be periodic under certain conditions. Whereas, for parameters in the instability region, the fields are pulse-like. In addition, in the stability region, this family admits solutions for evolution loops in quantum control. We obtain some prescriptions to reach such a control effect. Geometric phases in the evolution are also analyzed and discussed. View Full-Text
