Electromagnetically induced backscattering via slow light Conference Paper uri icon


  • We theoretically predict strong coherent scattering in the backward direction from forward propagating fields only. It is achieved by applying laser fields with proper chosen detunings and an approprate spatial phase to excite a molecular vibrational coherence that corresponds to a wave propagating backwards. The applications of the technique to coherent scattering and remote sensing are discussed.
