Slow light in metal nanocomposites

We propose a method for slowing down light pulses

by using composites doped with metal nanoparticles. The underlying

mechanism is related to the saturable absorption near the plasmon

resonance in a pump-probe regime, leading to strong dispersion of

the probe refractive index and significantly reduced group velocities.
