|Title:||Efficient multi-wave mixing in ultra slow propagation regime and the role of multi-photon quantum destructive interference,|
|Published:||October 01, 2004|
|Abstract:||We analyze a lifetime-broadened four-state four-wave-mixing (FWM) scheme in the ultraslow propagation regime and show that the generated FWM field can acquire the same group velocity and pulse shape as those of an ultraslow pump field. We show that a new type of induced transparency resulted from multiphoton destructive interference that significantly reduced the pump field loss. Such induced transparency based on multphoton destructive interference may have important applications in other nonlinear optical processes.|
