An analytic solution is found for SIT with two co-propagating pulses which
are doubly resonant with two transitions sharing a common excited state.
The pulse shapes are the usual hyperbolic secants, but the areas are not 2
pi. This solution satisfied the atomic equations exactly for all
detunings and arbitrary relative amplitudes for the two pulses. The field
equations, however, place extra restrictions on the detunings for perfect
