Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


A slow-light beamsplitter using the rapid transport of coherence in a wall-coated atomic vapor cell under electromagnetically-induced-transparency is presented. Such a beamsplitter may improve quantum repeater performance and be useful in quantum and classical optics.
