Abstract

Adiabatically shape-preserving-wave and solitary-wave solutions for five-level atomic systems are presented. They give the idealized situations for the shape preserving propagation of optical waves through a five-level atomic medium, and provide some useful comparisons with the electromagnetically induced transparency experiments performed by Harris and his collaborators on atoms with hyperfine structure.
