ABSTRACT
Alkali vapor cells with antirelaxation coated walls can have long atomic coherence times. However, using such coated cells in the hyperfine configuration for electromagnetically induced transparency (EIT) requires longitudinal atomic motion to be confined to less than the hyperfine wavelength. We employed a narrow (1 mm) coated cell geometry to study hyperfine EIT and slow and stored light in warm 87Rb vapor, with results comparable to those in buffer gas cells and showing the promise of such cells for several applications.

    A major component of the emission of many galaxies is in the Far Infrared and the Sub-mmillimeter. UV photons from stars are absorbed by dust and re-emitted at longer wavelengths. Fairly cold dust was found in large spirals by the Infrared Space Observatory and the Spitzer Observatory, but their...
