Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


We report the experimental demonstration of electromagnetically-induced transparency (EIT) in a GaAs quantum well, in which the absorption of an exciton resonance is reduced by more than twenty-fold. The destructive quantum interference for EIT is set up by a biexciton coherence.
