Using alternating defects to enhance quantum walk spreading

This paper introduces a new approach to enhance the spreading rate of continuous-time quantum walks. By alternating between two different defect configurations that individually inhibit wavepacket propagation, the overall dispersion can paradoxically be improved beyond the standard defect-free quantum walk. This counterintuitive effect opens possibilities for exploiting defects to boost quantum transport efficiency.
