Paper Abstract

Using the idea of achieving a high index of refraction on a transition via populating only one of the dressed states corresponding to this transition, we propose a (Lambda) -scheme that provides a ratio index/absorption approximately equals 300 on a strong field and give realistic numbers for the susceptibility (chi) .
