Atomic nuclei constitute an exemplary realization of chaotic dynamics in the quantum domain. These dense clouds of strongly interacting particles were at the dawn of the field of physics called quantum chaos.

In the 1980s, when its fundamentals were formulated, the field might be seen just as an exotic branch of quantum mechanics, but the present rapid growth of "quantum technologies" gives it a more practical potential.
