Abstract

We investigate the simultaneous formation and stable propagation of ultraslow optical soliton pairs in a lifetime broadened four-state atomic system under double- excitation with large one- and two- photon detunings. We show that detrimental probe field distortions due to strong dispersion effects under weak driving conditions can be well balanced by self- and cross-phase modulation effects, leading to a pair of temporal, group velocity, and amplitude matched ultraslow optical solitons of different frequencies.
