Paper Abstract

Significant deviation of light pulse group velocity from the speed of light с due to the anomalous dispersion of a medium (so-called “slow” and “fast” light phenomena) may be caused by several mechanisms. One of these mechanisms is reverse saturable absorption. This work presents experimental research of the propagation of high-power ultrashort laser pulses through the aqueous solution of the carbon nanostructures. Our experimental results demonstrate a “fast light” behavior of pulses transmitted through the aqueous solution of carbon nanostructures. Results of our numerical simulation are in good agreement with the experimental results and confirm that the observed phenomenon is due to reverse saturable absorption. The group velocity of nanosecond high-power laser pulses is negative and achieves value to –c/275.
