We show that the unique absorption and dispersion properties of the electromagnetically induced transparency can be used effectively to relax the conditions for observing the cavity ringdown effect (CRE), which can be useful in applications of CRE in ultrasensitive detection of chemical species. A more straightforward and simple method is used to model the interesting CRE.
