Abstract

Propagation of optical pulses through atomic media consisting of atoms with N transition levels and possessing the so-called Gell-Mann symmetry is studied. An analytic solution of the appropriate Maxwell-Bloch equations having the form of simultaneous different wavelength optical solutions is presented. The special case of N = 3 was known previously.
