Enhancing the spectral sensitivity of interferometers using slow-light media


Journal Article

We demonstrate experimentally that the spectral sensitivity of an interferometer can be greatly enhanced by introducing a slow-light medium into it. The experimental results agree very well with theoretical predictions that the enhancement factor of the spectral sensitivity is equal to the group index ng of the slow-light medium. © 2007 Optical Society of America.
