Abstract

We describe the observation of a sharp leading-edge spike in a biphoton wave packet that is produced using slow light and measured by two-photon correlation. Using the stationary-phase approximation we characterize this spike as a Sommerfeld–Brillouin precursor resulting from the interference of low- and high-frequency spectral components.
