Abstract
It is shown theoretically that, when two-level atoms are nonresonantly excited by a double light pulse that is a superposition of two rectangular pulses of identical frequency but different amplitude, it is possible to form multiple nutational echo signals whose amplitude is determined by the relationships between the Rabi frequencies of the double pulse, the inhomogeneous line width, and the detuning from resonance. It is established that these signals result from null beats between polarization vibrations at variable frequencies and at the generalized Rabi frequency. The optimum conditions for observing multiple echo signals in different experimental situations are considered.
