Abstract

We experimentally observe an ultralow effective group velocity of 0.9 cm/s of light pulses using the two-wave mixing process in an Sn2P2S6 (SPS):Te crystal at a visible wavelength. The time delay can be controlled through the nonlinear photorefractive gain and the input pulse duration. By optimizing the nonlinearity strength, we achieve a maximum fractional delay of 0.79 for a pulse duration of 100 ms. Our photorefractive slow light system allows combining low group velocity with large delay-bandwidth product for pulse durations spanning three orders of magnitude.
