Electromagnetically Induced Transparency with Fields Spectrally Broadened by Phase Noise Chapter uri icon

Electromagnetically induced transparency [1, 2] or EIT is an important nonlinear optical effect with wide ranging applications from slow light [3, 4] to sub-diffraction-limited optical imaging [5]. The most striking feature is the presence of zero (or low) absorption of a probe laser when it is exactly on resonance. In addition to the greatly reduced absorption is greatly enhanced normal dispersion on resonance. It is this steep dispersion coupled with low absorption that makes the system so rich.
