We study the generation of quadruple-transparency windows and the implementation of a conversion between slow and fast light in a hybrid optomechanical system. By demonstrating the generation of these transparency windows one by one, we analyze the physical mechanism through which each transparency window forms in detail. Additionally, we discuss how the system param- eters affect the formation of transparency windows and conclude that the location, width, and absorption of each transparency window can be arbitrarily manipulated by varying the appropriate parameters. Moreover, when the pump field is changed from red to blue detuning, conversions between slow and fast light occur in the output field. These interesting properties of the output field can be applied to achieve the coherent control and manipulation of light pulses using cavity optomechanical system.
