The recent observation by Hau and colleagues [1] of ultraslow light propagation (17 mys) motivates the study of nonlinear optical processes under conditions where slow group velocity is a dominant feature of the problem. The basic idea is to combine electromagnetically induced transparency (EIT) [2–4] and cold atom technology to create a sharp resonance with a transmission linewidth (Fig. 1) which is much less than the natural linewidth of the atoms. A pulse of light propagating in this medium… CONTINUE READING
