Abstract

We show the formation of ultraslow bright and dark optical solitons in a lifetime-broadened three-state atomic system under Raman excitation. We also discuss why such ultraslow optical solitons may not exist under the conditions of the usual electromagnetically induced transparency configuration where zero one- and two-photon detunings are required.
