Abstract

We study a combination of two-level electromagnetically induced transparency and dark states, and show that desirable features of both phenomena can be obtained in a single system. In particular, large self-phase modulation can be produced without pump or probe absorption, and without spontaneous-emission noise. We point out possible application of our system as a source for squeezed light.
