Paper Abstract

Spatio-temporal dynamics of two short laser pulses propagating in an absorbing medium, which consists of one- and two-photon resonant (Lambda) -atoms, is investigated in the adiabatic approximation. We give an analytical solution and compare it with numerical simulations. It is shown that pulses may propagate in a medium, whose thickness is considerably greater than the length of the linear absorption of a single weak probe wave. Finally, full transfer of the probe pulse energy into the coupling pulse takes place. A vector model of the adiabatic interaction of two pulses with three-level atom is proposed.
