Abstract

We derive a method for predicting the efficiency of stimulated photon echoes in optically thick media. Analytic solutions to the Maxwell–Bloch equations are derived for multiple pulse sequences in which the pulses are either temporally brief or have a low pulse area. This method retains the temporal and spatial information of the recalled waveform, and it provides a nonintensive computational method for determining the recall efficiency of stimulated photon echoes. The case considered is when the medium is optically thick and the recall efficiency is high, but with minimal distortion of the data. The results are in good agreement with a full space, time, and frequency numerical integration of the Maxwell–Bloch equations.
