We present the photonic analogy of the Fractional Bloch Oscillations : the oscillatory motion of interacting particles moving in a periodic potential, under the presence of a static force. The analogy is implemented with the propagation of classical light in a specially engineered photonic waveguides lattice, fabricated in fused silica substrate via femtosecond laser micromachining.
