We discuss the transport of optical waves in the fascinating intermediate regime between fully disordered and ordered systems. In particular we study the transport of short optical pulses in Fibonacci quasi-crystals and optical superlattices with broken symmetry and report the observation of Bloch oscillations of light waves.
