Abstract In this project, we have been investigation a new approach for manipulating the refractive index of a gas while maintaining vanishing absorption of the beam. We have recently experimentally demonstrated the key ingredients of this approach in Rubidium vapor where we have observe enhanced refractive index with vanishing absorption. We predict that this approach my also allow obtaining negative refraction with low absorption in atomic systems with far-reaching applications in fields as diverse as optical imaging and quantum computing.
