In science:

It depicts a small deviation from the expected fractional revival, which is not clearly visible in the carpet structure of Fig. 2(b).
Super revivals and sub-Planck scale structures of a slightly relativistic particle in a box
The reason, behind this phenomenon, is that the revival time, Trev , comes from the quadratic term in the expression, see Eq. (10), for the energy eigenvalues.
Super revivals and sub-Planck scale structures of a slightly relativistic particle in a box
So, in this range of relativistic corrections, the first revival time is still playing a role in the overall system dynamics.
Super revivals and sub-Planck scale structures of a slightly relativistic particle in a box
T (3) sr defines the full and perfect revival of the system state.
Super revivals and sub-Planck scale structures of a slightly relativistic particle in a box
In this case, the system dynamics is dominated by the super revival time.
Super revivals and sub-Planck scale structures of a slightly relativistic particle in a box
From Eq. (12) it is evident that whenever the system satisfies the revival condition for T (4) sr , automatically also the other condition, involving Trev is satisfied.
Super revivals and sub-Planck scale structures of a slightly relativistic particle in a box
The vice versa is not true and fractional revivals on the shorter time scale disappears.
Super revivals and sub-Planck scale structures of a slightly relativistic particle in a box
For a non-relativistic particle the unique revival time is Trev .
Super revivals and sub-Planck scale structures of a slightly relativistic particle in a box
To this end, we focus on the fractional revival appearing at time Trev/4 and characterize the interference fringes through their sub-Planck dimension.
Super revivals and sub-Planck scale structures of a slightly relativistic particle in a box
Hence, we have calculated the ratio between the sub-Planck dimensions of the interference fringes of the Wigner function at these two fractional revival times.
Super revivals and sub-Planck scale structures of a slightly relativistic particle in a box
For very small values of the characteristic relativistic parameter, the system time evolution still exhibits full and fractional revivals at the expected times.
Super revivals and sub-Planck scale structures of a slightly relativistic particle in a box
This behaviour obscures the expected full and fractional revivals on a time scale of the order Trev .
Super revivals and sub-Planck scale structures of a slightly relativistic particle in a box
The familiar full and fractional revivals, that mark the time evolution of the non-relativistic particle, manifest themselves on this new time scale T (4) sr .
Super revivals and sub-Planck scale structures of a slightly relativistic particle in a box
Again the analysis of sub-Planck dimension of the relevant interference fringes in the Wigner function allows for a comparison between the fractional revivals for different values of the relativistic parameter.
Super revivals and sub-Planck scale structures of a slightly relativistic particle in a box
Remarkably, the observation of these super revivals does not require a specially tailored or designed wave packet, as it happens, instead, in the fully relativistic case considered in Ref. 26.
