On electromagnetically induced transparency in the degenerate Λ-scheme


Department of Physics, St. Petersburg State University, Petrodvorets, St. Petersburg, 198904, Russian Federation

Using an experimental work on ’stopped light’ as an example, we show how a classical phenomenon of linear optics, the interference of polarized light, can imitate the effect of electromagnetically induced transparency.
