Abstract

We demonstrate experimentally slow and fast light effects achieved simultaneously using Raman gain and pump depletion in an atomic vapor. Heterodyne phase measurements show opposite dispersion characteristics at the pump and probe frequencies. Optical pulse propagations in the vapor medium confirm the slow and fast light effects due to these dispersions. We discuss applications of this technique in recently proposed rotation sensing and broadband detection schemes.
