Abstract

We consider the creation of artificial gauge magnetic and electric fields created when a two-level atom interacts with an optical Ferris wheel light field. These fields have the spatial structure of the optical Ferris wheel field intensity profile. It is shown, we believe for first time, that when this optical field pattern is made to rotate, then we have the creation of artificial electromagnetic fields that propagate in curved paths. The properties as well the limitations of these artificial electromagnetic fields are investigated and discussed.
