Paper Abstract

In this manuscript predicted delay is developed for a pulse propagating through an atomic vapor. Theoretical description for pulse delay is developed from atomic absorption coefficient with hyperfine structure and Voigt lineshape. Predicted delays are in agreement with observed delays in a cesium vapor cell at various temperatures between 78.9°C and 137.2°C.
