In a white light cavity (WLC)the group velocity is superluminal over a finite bandwidth. For a WLC-based data buffering system we recently proposedit is important to visualize the behavior of pulses inside such a cavity. The conventional plane wave transfer functionsvalid only over space that is translationally invariantcannot be used for the space inside WLC or any cavitywhich is translationally variant. Herewe develop the plane wave spatio temporal transfer function (PWSTTF) method to solve this problemand produce visual representations of a Gaussian input pulse incident on a WLCfor all times and positions.
