Polarisation effects in the formation of optical breathers at the inhomogeneously broadened J = 0 → J = 1 quantum transition

Abstract: The formation and collisions of breathers excited by laser radiation at the inhomogeneously broadened J = 0 → J = 1 quantum transition are studied by numerical simulations in the slowly varying envelope approximation. Conditions are obtained under which laser pulses with the initial shape quite simply realised in experiments can be transformed into elliptically polarised breathers in the medium, each of the components of their field being a breather described by the theory of self-induced transparency at a nondegenerate quantum transition. It is shown that the collision of such breathers is not elastic in the general case and leads to the appearance of more general types of resonance breather-like pulses. Taking into account relaxation processes, the possibility of the formation of a breather at the 6p2 3P0 → 6p7s 3P1 transition in the 208Pb isotope is investigated. It is found that relaxation in some case not only causes the pulse decay but also changes the eccentricity of its polarisation ellipse.
