We observed exact dynamic localization in its general case in strongly coupled curved waveguide arrays with periodic, nonsquare-wave curvatures. We achieved a six times change in the dynamic localization bandwidth by changing a design parameter in our deviated-square-wave curvature. By analyzing the relation between the bandwidth and curvature profile, we offer a general method to control the localization bandwidth.
