A novel analytical treatment of the transport of broadband radiation arbitrarily directed through a bleaching medium is presented. The emphasis is on the principle features of photodecomposition (bleaching) wave formation. Considering radiation from a uniform planar source with stable radiative characteristics and media with a uniform initial distribution of the absorptive component, we show that this problem has an asymptotic stationary solution for a wave propagating through a medium characterized by a photodecomposition spectrum without any portion in which the absorption cross section continually runs down to zero.
