The quest of utilizing neutral particles to simulate the behaviour of charged particles in a magnetic field makes the generation of artificial magnetic field of great interest. We put forward an optical scheme to generate effective gauge potentials for stationary-light polaritons in the static laboratory frame. To demonstrate the capabilities of our approach, we present a recipe for having dark state polaritons in degenerate Landau levels. Our scheme paves a novel way towards a versatile quantum simulator for mimicking different Hamiltonians and the investigation of the bosonic analogue of the fractional quantum Hall effect by electromagnetically induced transparency.
