    Abstract

    We introduce a method to achieve the three-dimensional dynamic localization of light. We consider a dynamically modulated resonator lattice that has been previously shown to exhibit an effective gauge potential for photons. When such an effective gauge potential varies sinusoidally in time, dynamic localization of light can be achieved. Moreover, while previous works on such an effective gauge potential for photons were carried out in the regime where the rotating wave approximation is valid, the effect of dynamic localization persists even when the counterrotating term is taken into count.
