This paper presents an analytical investigation of the nonlinear interactions between the pulse and different carrier states in the amplifier medium and their effect on the pulse propagation process. For an inverted semiconductor medium, it is proposed that for femtosecond pulses, the linear amplification is converted into an adiabatic following regime due to the propagation. Substantial pulse shortening results due to this process.
