Enhanced Coupling between Optical and Sound Waves via Ultra-Slow Light Conference Paper uri icon


  • We demonstrate interaction of acoustic and electromagnetic waves when the light group velocity is comparable to the speed of sound in the medium. Large conversion at the sound frequency is observed. 2005 OSA.
