In this talk, I propose to focus on two recent experimental results of our team obtained by shaking a Bose Einstein condensate in an optical lattice:
1) In the first part, I will focus the discussion on the production of s-wave scattering halos from collisions between the momentum components of a Bose–Einstein condensate released from an optical lattice which provides an interesting example of matter-wave duality. I will report on the methods we have developed to engineer those halos  [1]. More generally, we will explain a strategy to produce arbitrary quantum states using optimal control theory [2].
2) In the second part, I will focus on quasi-resonant modulation of the lattice depth to observe a quantum chaos transport mechanism called chaos-assisted tunneling. Under such a modulation, the classical phase space exhibits  stable islands surrounded by a large chaotic sea. The coupling between islands is mediated by delocalized Floquet states that spread over the chaotic sea. As a result, the transport between the islands exhibit sharp resonances where the tunneling rate varies by orders of magnitude over a short range of parameters. We experimentally demonstrate and characterize these resonances for the first time in a quantum system. This opens the way to new kinds of quantum simulations with long-range transport [3,4].
