  author={Alexey Verbitskiy and A. V. Yulin},
It is shown that the efficiency of the excitation of Bloch oscillations depends not only on the carrier frequency, but also on the frequency of the amplitude oscillations of the driving force. In the nonlinear regime a period doubling bifurcation occurs and the chain of these bifurcations results in chaotic Bloch oscillations of the wave envelope bouncing in the system. 



Electric-field-induced nonlinear bloch oscillations and dynamical localization.

It is shown that localization can be dynamically induced by a temporally harmonic field as a consequence of parametric resonances at certain field strengths.

Stable BLOCH oscillations of cold atoms with time-dependent interaction.

It is shown that Bloch oscillations are persistent if the interaction is modulated harmonically with suitable frequency and phase, and collective coordinates whose Hamiltonian dynamics permits one to predict a whole family of stable solutions.

Bloch oscillations sustained by nonlinearity

It is demonstrated that designing an optimal relation between the nonlinearity and the linear gradient strength provides extremely long-lived Bloch oscillations with little degradation.

Dynamic localization and Bloch oscillations in the spectrum of a frequency mode-locked laser.

It is shown that a frequency mode-locked laser with a sinusoidal sweep of modulation frequency around a mode-locking condition represents an ideal optical system for observing in the spectral domain

Long-living BLOCH oscillations of matter waves in periodic potentials.

It is shown that by properly designing the spatial dependence of the scattering length it is possible to induce long-living Bloch oscillations of gap-soliton matter waves in optical lattices when the effective nonlinearity and the effective mass of the soliton have opposite signs for all values of the crystal momentum in the Brillouin zone.

Dynamical localization of gap-solitons by time periodic forces

The phenomenon of dynamical localization of matter wave solitons in optical lattices is first demonstrated and the conditions for its existence are discussed. In addition to the trapping linear

Experimental Observation of Linear and Nonlinear Optical Bloch Oscillations

We experimentally demonstrate the occurrence of optical Bloch oscillations in a waveguide array with linearly growing effective index of the individual guides. We monitored the output profiles for

Experimental observation of spectral Bloch oscillations.

The spectrum of weak probe pulses is shown to oscillate on account of their group-velocity mismatch to the periodic field and the behavior of a cw probe spectrum reveals the actual discrete nature of the effect.
