We demonstrate experimentally that matter waves can be coherently and adiabatically loaded and controlled in one-, two-, and three-dimensional strongly driven optical lattices. This coherent control is then used in order to reversibly induce the superfluid-Mott insulator phase transition by changing the strength of the driving. Our findings pave the way for studies of driven quantum systems and new methods for controlling matter waves.

Abstract

We demonstrate experimentally that matter waves can be coherently and adiabatically loaded and controlled in one-, two-, and three-dimensional strongly driven optical lattices. This coherent control is then used in order to reversibly induce the superfluid-Mott insulator phase transition by changing the strength of the driving. Our findings pave the way for studies of driven quantum systems and new methods for controlling matter waves.
