Probing the vacuum induced coherence in a Λ system Academic Article uri icon


  • We propose a simple test to demonstrate and detect the presence of vacuum induced coherence in a Λ system. We show that the probe field absorption is modulated due to the presence of such a coherence which is unobservable in fluorescence. We present analytical and numerical results for the modulated absorption, the cosine and sine components of which display different types of behavior.
