The effect of the homogeneous broadening on the propagation of the light pulses

  • W. Miklaszewski
  • J. Fiutak
Original Contributions


The propagation of resonant pulses in a two-level homogeneously broadened atomic medium is analyzed. The pulses with the duration comparable with the atomic coherence relaxation time are considered. The effects of the long pulse area stabilization and destabilization are reported. The numerical simulation is performed.
