Electromagnetically induced transparency (EIT) has been studied primarily
within the context of multilevel atomic systems. We show that EIT can
occur also in a two-level atomic system and can lead to strong self-action
and slow-light effects that are not hampered by material absorption, with
important potential implications for processes such as squeezed-light
generation and the propagation of optical solitons.
