Abstract
The simultaneous propagation of two optical pulses through a doped nonlinea r dispersive medium modelled by a resonant three-level system was investiga ted numerically, within the framework of a pair of coupled extended nonline ar Schrodinger equations. These included the contribution of the dopant res onances whose dynamics is governed by Bloch equations. In this work, we rev iew the interesting possibilities on the manipulation of fields such as clo ning, breakup and soliton interactions, that the combination of coherent po pulation trapping with nonlinear dispersive media offers.
