We study kicked quantum systems by using the squeezed state approach. Taking the kicked quantum harmonic oscillator as an example, we demonstrate that chaos in an underlying classical system can be enhanced as well as suppressed by quantum fluctuations. Three different energy diffusions are observed in the kicked quantum harmonic oscillator, namely, localization, linear diffusion, and quadratic diffusion.
