Abstract
The features of spatial propagation of two partially overlapping short resonant pulses (counterintuitive pulse sequencing) in an absorbing medium of three-level atoms under conditions of adiabatic population transfer are investigated. We find that pulses can propagate with practically constant amplitudes in a medium with length much higher than the absorption length. It is shown that adiabatic population transfer creates full population inversion on a dipole-forbidden (Raman) transition over the way of pulses' propagation. We suggest use of this technique for conversion of picosecond laser pulses into tunable coherent anti-Stokes radiation.
