Paper Abstract

The nonresonant propagation of a laser pulse through a nonlinear dielectric is now a well studied subjet because its extensive and direct applications mainly in communications by means of optical fibers and in spectroscopy. On the other hand, the coherent resonant interaction between high intense laser pulses and atoms or molecules is an intrinsic nonlinear phenomena that have received a great deal of attention since the discovery of Self Induced Transparency (SIT). However, the simultaneous consideration of both sources of nonlinearities, that may represent more realistic and important experimental situations, have not been yet studied in a systematic way.
