Nonclassical effects in multilevel electromagnetically induced transparency

Presenting Author: Mitch Mazzei, Miami University
Contributing Author(s): Perry Rice

We examine a multilevel system that can exhibit EIT or EIA under appropriate conditions. These effects can be understood in terms of classical coupled oscillators. We examine whether nonclassical behavior is exhibited in the EIT/EIA regime, and elsewhere. Specifically, the second order intensity correlation function g^{(2)}(/tau) and the intensity-field correlation function h_{/theta}(/tau) are calculated for various EIT/EIA parameters and then analyzed in the context of classical inequalities. Nonclassical behavior cannot be described by a classical stochastic process, no mean field plus noise. Those cannot be described by two classical oscillators. We propose a multilevel photonic memory in this system as well.
