In this work we investigate propagation of two laser pulses in the optically dense atomic medium (three-level Λ -system) in the case of a closed excitation contour. The closed excitation contour is created by additional microwave radiation which interacts with the low-frequency transition of the Λ -system. Two cases are considered: when the pulse duration is more and less then lifetime of the excited atomic level. It is shown that the propagation of the pulses depends on the relative phase of the fields. When the relative phase is zero, the pulses energy is absorbed linearly. When the relative phase is π / 2, the pulses exchange energy between each other.
Key words: closed excitation contour / laser pulse / coherent population trapping / optically dense medium
