Slow light is an electromagnetic wave with a group velocity reduced by optical resonances in the medium through which it is travelling. These resonances can occur in atomic vapours, in photonic crystals, and by taking advantage of nonlinear optical process in optical fibres. Slow light could find a practical application in optical memories.
