Colloquium: Coherent diffusion of polaritons in atomic media

Ofer Firstenberg, M. Shuker, A. Ron, Nir Davidson

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Coherent diffusion pertains to the motion of atomic dipoles experiencing frequent collisions in vapor while maintaining their coherence. Recent theoretical and experimental studies on the effect of coherent diffusion on key Raman processes, namely, Raman spectroscopy, slow polariton propagation, and stored light, are reviewed in this Colloquium.
