Results of numerical calculations are presented and analyzed for pulse generation and subsequent stabilization in large propagation distance z , for a collection of two-level absorbers which are swept-excited by an impulse inversion along the z-direction at the speed of light in the medium. The calculation is performed using the coupled Maxwell-Bloch formalism and for the conditions that T2 = T1 , T2 > ιc, g/κ > > 1, where T2 is macroscopic dipole moment dephasing time, T1 is the longitudinal relaxation time for the absorber, ιc is the characteristic superradiant cooperation time among the absorbers and g/κ is the linear gain, g , to diffraction loss, κ, ratio. Results of the calculation for nonlinear pulse evolution and propagation for one spacial dimension (planar case) is compared with the results for the comparable case where transverse mode coupling is included.
