Conference paper


CW-electromagnetically induced transparency (EIT) has been observed both in a lambda-type1 and a ladder-type2 three-level system of rubidium atoms. In particular, quantum interference of life-time broadened dressed states has been observed directly and dispersion properties of EIT were measured.1,2 In this paper, we report an experiment on enhancement of non-degenerate four-wave mixing (NDFWM) using EIT in a lambda-type three-level system of rubidium atoms.
