Abstract

We theoretically study the stacked optical transients generated from a series of square pulses passing through a cold atomic ensemble. Using the hybrid analysis and fast Fourier transform, we identify the stacked coherent transients [ Europhys. Lett. 4, 47 (1987) ] as optical precursors. With slow-light and electromagnetically induced transparency, we obtain nearly 700% transmitted intensity at the transient spikes resulting from the interference between the delayed main field and the stacked optical precursors.
