This work demonstrated theoretically that the entangled coherences of an atomic velocity-selective coherent population trapping (VSCPT) gas give rise to a distinctive optical signal, a backscattered beam of light, when the VSCPT gas is probed with a weak signal laser pulse. If the probe pulse and the pump beams are simultaneously applied the VSCPT gas also exhibits the phenomenon of electromagnetically induced transparency (EIT).

Two-way interconversion of millimeter-wave and optical fields in Rydberg gases
We show that cold Rydberg gases enable an efficient six-wave mixing process where terahertz or microwave fields are coherently converted into optical fields and vice versa. This process is made
