Terahertz Electromagnetically Induced Transparency in Cesium Atoms



Sumit Bhushan, Oliver T. Slattery, Xiao Tang, Lijun Ma


We outline a proposal to realize Electromagnetically Induced Transparency (EIT) with the potential to store Terahertz (THz) optical pulses in Cesium atoms. Such a system, when experimentally realized, has a potential to make Quantum Communication possible with THz signals.
