Abstract

We present a theoretical study of temporal compression of a short-wavelength laser pulse predicted in a real, Doppler-broadened, atomic system. The compression is the result of the coherent control peculiarities of electromagnetically induced transparency-propagation dynamics. Numerical results are reported and discussed, showing a temporal compression of 2 orders of magnitude (from 10 ns to 100 ps) of a 106.7-nm laser pulse in argon atoms at room temperature.
