Propagation of phase nonanalytical points in fast- and slow-light media

Propagation of phase nonanalytical points in fast- and slow-light media We performed a series of experiments to examine the arrival of phase nonanalytical points in fast- and slow-light media, using a Gaussian-shaped temporal pulse and encoding phase nonanalytical points at various positions within the pulse envelope. For the phase nonanalytical points, the amplitude of the slowly varying pulse envelope, as well as any order of the derivatives, is continuous, but the phase of the carrier wave is discontinuous. The phase nonanalytical points were neither advanced nor delayed, but appeared at the same instance as they entered the fast- and slow-light media, in good accordance with the idea that the information velocity was equal to the velocity of light in a vacuum, c, or in the background medium. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Physical Review A American Physical Society (APS)
