Coherent forward scattering of a single photon wave packet in a resonant medium Academic Article uri icon


  • The propagation of a single photon wave packet in a thick resonant medium was studied theoretically and experimentally. The well-known acceleration of wave packet decay was observed upon wave packet exiting from a medium with single resonant absorption line. It was found that in a medium with two closely spaced absorption lines, the restoration of the photon wave packet is observed after the acceleration of decay. © 2010 Allerton Press, Inc.
