It is now possible to create artificial magnetic field for ultra cold atoms using geometric gauge potentials . Recently it was shown that the magnetic flux induced by the geometric potentials can be made proportional to the surface area of the atomic cloud and thus be considerably increased [2,3] as compared to the previous proposals where the flux was proportional to the linear extend of the cloud. For this extension it was suggested to use periodic atom-light coupling and detuning. Here we consider a realistic scheme of creating a square optical flux lattice using Raman transitions induced by a set of properly chosen polarization-dependent optical standing waves with a time-phase difference. Such a method produces both a non-stagard magnetic flux and also a lattice potential.  J. Dalibard, F. Gerbier, G.Juzeliunas, and P.Ohberg. Artificial gauge potentials for neutral atoms. Rev. Mod.
