Paper Abstract

The effects are observed of propagation of an ultimately short (in one or several oscillation) electromagnetic pulse in a medium whose resonance transition characterized both by diagonal and non-diagonal matrix elements of dipole operator. The Maxwell-Bloch set of equation is employed without the approximation of slowly varying amplitudes. The analog of MacCall and Hahn area theorem is discussed corresponding to the process of the initial ultimately short pulse break up into subpulses. A novel solution is found in the form of a stable solitary bipolar signal, whose pulse area is not zero- non-zero breather.
