Paper Abstract

We present a preliminary experimental study of slow and stored light in Rb vapor cells under the conditions of electromagnetically induced transparency (EIT). We study the efficiency of light storage as a function of pulse duration, storage time, retrieval field intensity, etc. We demonstrate that atomic diffusion in-and-out of the laser beam plays an important role not well described by previous analysis.
