Abstract

We demonstrate the existence of tunable bound-states in continuum (BIC) in a 1-dimensional quantum wire with two impurities by an intense monochromatic radiation field. We found that there is a new type of BIC due to the Fano interference between two optical transition channels, in addition to the ordinary BIC due to a geometrical interference between electron wave functions emitted by impurities. In both cases the BIC can be achieved by tuning the frequency of the radiation field.
