Abstract

We report experimental results on the propagation temporal characteristics of the precursor in an inhomogeneous sample. The transient behavior of a step-like pulse in an atomic hot medium is two orders of magnitude faster than the radiative broadened case up to now presented in the literature. Moreover, we show the dependence on the resonant or nonresonant condition. Numerical simulations compare favorable to experimental results.
