We study a problem of achieving three-dimensional dynamic localization of light in a dynamically-modulated resonator lattice. An effective gauge potential for photons has been previously shown to exhibit in such lattice. Dynamic localization of light can be achieved by varying the effective gauge potential sinusoidally in time. Furthermore, the rotating wave approximation was used in previous works on such effective gauge potential for photons. Here, we find that the effect of dynamic localization persists even in the regime where the counter-rotating term has to be taken into count.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for most presentations.
