Abstract

We discuss the light pulse propagation in a one-dimensional photonic crystal doped by graphene quantum dots in a defect layer. The graphene quantum dots behave as a three-level quantum system and are driven by three coherent laser fields. It is shown that the group velocity of the transmitted and reflected pulses can be switched from subluminal to superluminal light propagation by adjusting the relative phase of the applied fields. Furthermore, it is found that by proper choice of the phase difference between applied fields, the weak probe field amplification is achieved through a one-dimensional photonic crystal. In this way, the result is simultaneous subluminal transmission and reflection.
