Mesoscopic Electromagnetic Wave Dynamics in Ultracold Atomic Gases

Robin Kaiser and Mark D. Havey

Ultracold atomic gases present a unique medium for studies of classical and quantum optical phenomena. Recent research on coherent multiple light scattering in such media shows a range of surprising effects, and suggests possibilities for strong localization of electromagnetic radiation in a dense and ultracold atomic gas sample.
