By performing a pre-selection, an optically-induced unitary transformation, and then a post-selection on the polarization degree of freedom, the phase of the output beam acquires either a zero or 1/4 phase shift. The scheme is experimentally demonstrated using a coherently prepared dark-state in a warm atomic cesium vapor.
