Paper Abstract

We propose a scheme that provides all optically controlled steering of light beam. The system is based on steep dispersion of coherently driven medium. Using eikonal equation, we study the steering angle, the spread of optical beam, and the limits set by residual absorption of medium under conditions of electromagnetically induced transparency (EIT). Implementation of another scheme for ultra-short pulses is also discussed.
