Abstract

In this paper, we propose a novel technique for slow light experiments using electromagnetically induced transparency using a two-dimensional magneto optical trap (2D-MOT). A compact 2D-MOT design efficient for quantum memory applications with adjustable optical depth (OD) is proposed. We estimated the OD for our 2D-MOT setup and found that light group velocities as low as 1.4 m/s can be attained. Our design for 2D-MOT allows precise control and optimization of the OD such that high storage efficiencies could also be achieved. With our design, it is possible to obtain a delay bandwidth product of 163, which is very high in comparison to previously obtained values.
