Abstract: Matter waves can be coherently and adiabatically loaded and controlled in strongly driven optical lattices. This coherent control is used in order to modify the modulus and the sign of the tunneling matrix element in the tunneling Hamiltonian. Our findings pave the way for studies of driven quantum systems and new methods for engineering Hamiltonians that are impossible to realize with static techniques.
