Phase-matching between optical and sound waves in forward direction via ultra-slow light Conference Paper uri icon


  • We experimentally demonstrated phase-matching between optical waves propagating in the same direction and sound wave in the cell of Rb vapor. Phase-matching occurs when group velocity of light is equal to the sound speed. 2003 Optical Society of America.
