The exotic effects of slow light have been widely observed in the laboratory.
However, current literature fails to explore the wider field of slow light in
photonic structures and optical fibers. Reflecting recent research, Slow
Light: Science and Applications presents a comprehensive introduction to slow
light and its potential applications, including storage, switching, DOD
applications, and nonlinear optics. The book covers fundamentals of slow
light in various media, including atomic media, semiconductors, fibers, and
photonic structures.Leading authorities in such diverse fields as atomic
vapor spectroscopy, fiber amplifiers, and integrated optics provide an
interdisciplinary perspective. They uncover potential applications in both
linear and nonlinear optics.
