    A theoretical analysis of pulse propagation in a semiconductor quantum dot photonic crystal waveguide in the regime of electromagnetically induced transparency is presented. The slow light mechanism considered here is based on both material and waveguide dispersion. The group index n(g) for the combined system is significantly enhanced relative to slow light based on purely material or waveguide dispersion.
