Abstract

We analyze backward four-wave mixing in a four-level system exhibiting electromagnetically induced transparency (EIT). We show that EIT suppression of the linear absorption leads to the resonantly enhanced four-wave mixing process and the conversion efficiency near 100% may be achieved in a dense four-level medium with negligible decoherence decay.
