We numerically study a particle in a box with moving walls. In the case where the walls are oscillating sinusoidally with a small amplitude, we show that states up to the fourth state can be populated with more than 80 percent population, while higher lying states can also be selectively excited. This work introduces a way of controlling quantum systems which does not rely on (dipole) selection rules.
