Paper Abstract

Exact soliton solutions of a coupled system of Maxwell-Bloch equations are obtained analytically within the inverse scattering transform scheme. The equations describe a light pulse coherently propagating through a mixed ensemble of two-level atoms characterized by two slightly different detuning parameters. The solution illustrates the information about the detailed atomic properties which are impressed on both phase and velocity of the pulse during propagation, with potential applications in high resolution spectroscopy.
