The spatiotemporal dynamics of pulse-pair propagation in prepared media is investigated under two-photon resonance. A vector model is presented for the observation of the phase regulation of the temporal evolution of the coherent pulses. The results show how the phase and amplitude of one pulse are altered with the use of another pulse at the input of the detuning medium.
