Screen Shot 2014-12-05 at 16.17.10When a medium is driven by two laser beams at resonance with two atomic transitions, Screen Shot 2014-12-05 at 16.16.57electromagnetically induced transparency takes place. In the vicinity of such resonance, transverse pattern formation has the richest variety to-date including spaghetti on a plate [1].
