Electromagnetically induced coherent backscattering: Concepts and experiments Conference Paper uri icon


  • We demonstrate a strong coherent backward wave oscillation using forward propagating fields only. This is achieved by applying laser fields to an ultra-dispersive medium with proper chosen detunings. The physics then has much in common with propagation of ultra-slow light. Applications and experimental progress will be discussed. © 2007 Optical Society of America.
