From laser-induced line narrowing to electromagnetically induced transparency in a Doppler-broadened system
The laser-induced line narrowing effect in Doppler broadened systems was discovered thirty years ago. We have revisited this effect to determine its role for dense gases where recent experimental studies have found many intriguing atomic coherence effects. Using the density matrix approach, we study the width of electromagnetically induced transparency under different regimes of broadening.
