Abstract

We consider a method for efficient parametric generation of a laser pulse. A single laser field is injected into a three-level medium that has two lower states and one excited state. The lower states are initially prepared in a position-dependent coherent superposition state. It is shown that, by proper choice of the position dependence of the superposition along the direction of propagation, the incoming field can be completely converted to a new field.
