Paper Abstract

We show that electromagnetically induced transparency can be used to store coherently and to retrieve light pulses propagating in a one-dimensional waveguide through a line of atoms, thereby realizing light-controlled on-demand quantum memory. Storage can be highly efficient even with just a few atoms despite inter-atomic scattering interference due to the one-dimensional constraint.
