ULTRASLOW GROUP VELOCITY AND ENHANCED NONLINEAR OPTICAL EFFECTS IN A COHERENTLY DRIVEN HOT ATOMIC GAS
We report the observation of small group velocities of order 90 m/s and large group delays of greater than 0.26 ms, in an optically dense hot rubidium gas ( $\ensuremath{\approx}360\mathrm{K}$).
Optimizing the Laser-Pulse Configuration for Coherent Raman Spectroscopy
TLDR
A hybrid technique that combines the robustness of frequency-resolved coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (CARS) with the advantages of time-resolving CARS spectroscopy is introduced and a rapid and highly specific detection scheme that works even in the presence of multiple scattering is demonstrated.
Gain-swept superradiance applied to the stand-off detection of trace impurities in the atmosphere
TLDR
Gain-swept superradiance can be used to detect low concentrations of various gases at distances on the order of kilometers, which is done by using pulse timing to create small regions of gain at positions that sweep toward a detector.
X-ray quantum optics
Quantum optics with X-rays has long been a somewhat exotic activity, but it is now rapidly becoming relevant as precision x-ray optics and novel X-ray light sources, and high-intensity lasers are
Raman and Infrared Studies of Platinum-Based Drugs: Cisplatin, Carboplatin, Oxaliplatin, Nedaplatin, and Heptaplatin.
TLDR
A vibrational energy decomposition analysis (VEDA) suggests that oxaliplatin and heptaplatin Pt-N stretching modes are not Raman or IR active, and instead, C-C and Pt-O stretching frequencies in the various bidentate dioxo ligands might be more useful in characterizing new cisplatin derivatives.

TLDR
By exciting vibrational coherence on more than one mode simultaneously, a quantum beat signal is observed that can be used to extract the parameters of molecular motion in DPA and will lead to a technique for real-time detection of spores.
Inducing quantum coherence via decays and incoherent pumping with application to population trapping, lasing without inversion, and quenching of spontaneous emission
Quantum interference in a decaying three-level system of V type with degenerate upper levels driven by a single incoherent field is shown to lead to a coherent population-trapping state and more
Observation of a three-photon electromagnetically induced transparency in hot atomic vapor
We demonstrate experimentally the effect of a three-photon electromagnetically induced transparency in hot ${}^{85}\mathrm{Rb}$ atomic vapor driven by two coherent electromagnetic fields. The narrow
Buffer-gas-induced absorption resonances in Rb vapor
We observe transformation of the electromagnetically induced transparency (EIT) resonance into an absorption resonance in a $\ensuremath{\Lambda}$ interaction configuration in a cell filled with
