Paper Abstract

Recently artificial inhomogeneous broadening was proposed to expand the bandwidth of slow light. The point is to independently slow down all harmonic components of the input pulse via inhomogeneous broadening. An input pulse or sequence of pulses can be split into independent spectral channels by a dispersive element such as a prism or grating. These sub-pulses are then slowed by bandwidth-matched slow-light array elements, and then recombined with another dispersive element to produce the output pulse. The proof of principle experiment was done with a photorefractive crystal Ce:BaTiO3 where the crystal function as both dispersive elements and slow lights devices.
