Superluminal electromagnetic solitons in nonequilibrium media


Kaliningrad State University, ul. Nevskogo 14, Kaliningrad, 236041, Russian Federation

The possibility of stable faster-than-light propagation of ultimately short (without high-frequency carrier) electromagnetic solitons, breathers, and nonresonant envelope solitons is discussed based on the simple model of two-component nonequilibrium media undergoing two-level quantum transitions with widely differing eigenfrequencies.
