Paper Abstract

We present a new exact solution of Maxwell-Schrodinger set of equations. This solution describes propagation of a laser pulse through a (Lambda) -type medium, where the initial atomic state is prepared in the form of spatially-varying coherent superposition of low-energetic states. The solution describes a new type of transparency, which is characterized by a transformation of frequency of the incident pulse. Specifically, this type of transparency can be used for creation of an 'optical key' and a frequency converter.
