Abstract

We report the first experimental implementation of Glauber–Fock oscillator lattices. Bloch-like revivals are observed in these optical structures in spite of the fact that the photonic array is effectively semi-infinite and the waveguide coupling is not uniform. This behavior is entirely analogous to the dynamics exhibited by a driven quantum harmonic oscillator. Our observations are in excellent agreement to the analytical results obtained in this fully integrable lattice system.
