Abstract

We study the quantum memory protocol for spatially multimode light based on an atomic ensemble in the Λ-configuration. We analytically solve a system of partial differential equations that describe the evolution of the medium and field for the case where the interaction time considerably exceeds the lifetime of the excited state. This time ratio makes it possible to apply the adiabatic approximation. Unlike problems aimed at storage the time profile of the signal field, we propose optimizing the relation between the writing and reading times and the optical density of the medium, which ensures a high retrieval efficiency of the quantum image.
