Electromagnetically Induced Transparency : Optics in Coherent Media

  title={Electromagnetically Induced Transparency : Optics in Coherent Media},
  author={Michael Fleischhauer and Ataç Imamoğlu and Jonathan P. Marangos},
Coherent preparation by laser light of quantum states of atoms and molecules can lead to quantum interference in the amplitudes of optical transitions. In this way the optical properties of a medium can be dramatically modified, leading to electromagnetically induced transparency and related effects, which have placed gas-phase systems at the center of recent advances in the development of media with radically new optical properties. This article reviews these advances and the new possibilities… CONTINUE READING
