Dynamic localization is the suppression of the broadening of a charged-particle wave packet as it moves along a periodic potential in an a.c. electric field. The same effect occurs for optical beams in curved photonic lattices, where the lattice bending has the role of the driving field, and leads to the cancellation of diffraction. Dynamic localization was also observed for Bose-Einstein condensates, and could have a role in the spin dynamics of molecular magnets. It has been predicated that...[Show more]
