Paper Abstract

We study the phenomenon of the spontaneous soliton formation (SSF) emerging under the propagation of a high-power laser pulse, being initially non-soliton, through a two-component resonantly absorbing medium. By the SSF we mean a process of self-forming of soliton-like optical pulse (or pulses) from initially non-soliton one in the course of its propagation through the medium. The further propagation of this soliton- like pulse is accompanied with the zero energy dissipation.
