Coherent response to optical excitation in a strongly absorbing rare-earth ion-doped crystal
- J. Ruggiero et al. report a study of the propagation of optical pulses in a strongly absorbing rare-earth doped crystal. The experiment on the area theorem is state of the art and is complemented by high-quality...
