Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


For CW-EIT and pulsed signal fields, we predict and measure the rise-times of the EIT-Kerr-optical nonlinearity are proportional to the product of the optical-pumping rate and medium optical-thickness. A slow-light signal field overcomes some rise-time limitations.
