Abstract

We have experimentally demonstrated that stored and retrieved light pulses have different frequencies but maintain phase coherence; a stored light pulse is released with a different polarization. However, the manipulation process causes an energy loss of the retrieved pulse. We have discovered that Clebsch–Gordan coefficients among the Zeeman sublevels play an important role in the energy loss and have demonstrated a solution for avoiding the energy loss.
