Storage by trapping and spatial staggering of multiple interacting solitons in -type media
|Abstract:||In this paper we investigate the properties of self induced transparency (SIT) solitons, propagating
in a �-type medium. We �nd that the interaction between SIT solitons can lead to trapping with
their phase preserved in the ground state coherence of the medium. These phases can be altered
in a systematic way by the application of appropriate light �elds, such as additional SIT solitons.
Furthermore, multiple independent SIT solitons can be made to propagate as bi-solitons through
their mutual interaction with a separate light �eld. Finally, we demonstrate that control of the SIT
soliton phase can be used to implement an optical exclusive-or gate.
