Abstract

Electromagnetically induced transparency (EIT) is a promising approach to implement quantum memory in quantum communication and quantum computing applications. In this paper, following a brief overview of the main approaches to quantum memory, we provide details of the physical principle and theory of quantum memory based specifically on EIT. We discuss the key technologies used to implement EIT based quantum memory and review important milestones, from the first experimental demonstration to current applications in quantum information systems.
