Periodic driving is a ubiquitous tool for controlling experimental quantum systems. When the drive fields are of comparable, incommensurate frequencies, new theoretical tools are required to treat the resulting quasiperiodic time dependence. Similarly, new and surprising phenomena of topological origin may emerge in this regime, including the quantized pumping of energy from one drive field to another. I will describe how to exploit this energy pumping to coherently translate––or boost––quantum states of a cavity in the Fock basis. This protocol enables the preparation of highly excited Fock states for use in quantum metrology––one need only boost low occupation Fock states. Energy pumping, and hence boosting, may be achieved nonadiabatically as a robust edge effect associated to a topological phase. I will present a simple coupled-layer model for the phase, and briefly describe the topological classification which characterizes its robust properties.
