Abstract

Weak probe-pulse propagation is studied in a three-level atomic system irradiated by a strong control laser field and a strong microwave field in the closed-loop triangular (Δ) configuration. In addition to the direct absorption channel, a second channel is activated in which a probe photon’s absorption is replaced by its emission accompanied by an absorption of two control and two microwave photons. The pulse can be considered a superposition of two components, each of which experiences a separated effective susceptibility, exhibiting its absorption/gain windows. The evolution of the pulse spectrum in space and the pulse evolution in space–time are discussed. In particular it is shown that the number and positions of the spectrum peaks change and the pulse exhibits beats. In addition to the propagating field, a stationary light generated by the sample is also discussed.
