Information theoretic analysis of a slow-light channel

Mark A. Neifeld, Myungjun Lee

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


We present a new formalism for the analysis of a slow-light channel, which enables natural information-theoretic definitions for delay and capacity. We apply this formalism to a simple gain-based delay system.
