Slow Light in Atomic Vapors

Ryan M. Camacho, John C. Howell

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


While the theoretical foundations of slow light have been well-known for many years, the experimental investigation of slow light did not begin until relatively recently. From the beginning, atomic vapors have played an important role in carrying out these experiments. Many of the preliminary studies of optical group velocities were performed using atomic vapors, and atomic vapors continue to be used in both fundamental and applied slow light research.
