Two-pulse interference and superluminality


We examine how the interference of a coherent light-pulse with its slightly time-delayed copy may generate a pulse nearly identical to the original one and ahead of it. The simplicity of this 2-pulse system enabled us to obtain exact analytic expressions of the pulse distortion, valid for a wide class of pulse shapes. Explicit results are given for the… (More)
