Abstract

Propagation of light in a rotating optical ring resonator shows striking similarities with magnetic flux induced electron propagation in small metal rings. This correspondence leads us to predict the possibility of Bloch oscillations and Zener tunneling with light in sufficiently high-Q rotating ring resonators.
