Abstract

We study the reflection of Bloch wave packets at the interface of an optical lattice possessing a shallow longitudinal out-of-phase refractive index modulation in the adjacent waveguides. We show that the relation between the transmitted and reflected energy flows can be efficiently controlled by tuning the frequency and depth of the modulation. Thus, complete beam reflection may be achieved for a set of resonant modulation frequencies at which light tunneling between adjacent guides of modulated lattice is inhibited.
