Practical Course F65

Is it possible to stop the effect that a medium has on a propagating beam of electromagnetic radiation? Electromagnetically induced transparency (EIT) is a technique that makes this possible for certain optical frequencies and leads to a finite window of transparency in the transmission signal. Thus, with EIT you can make a medium transparent using quantum interference and this is what we are going to observe in this practical course.
