Abstract

Random optical-pulse polarization switching along an active optical medium in the Λ configuration with spatially disordered occupation numbers of its lower energy sublevel pair is described using the idealized integrable Maxwell-Bloch model. Analytical results describing the light polarization-switching statistics for the single self-induced transparency pulse are compared with statistics obtained from direct Monte Carlo numerical simulations.
