We describe a method for generating a wide spectrum and at the same time improving propagation through a model inhomogeneous gaseous medium. The method is based on using a small two-photon detuning from a Raman resonance to adiabatically establish an appropriate molecular superposition state. This state, in turn, generates a broad spectrum of sidebands whose refractive index, Rayleigh scatter, and accumulated phase delay are much less than those of a single spectral component, if propagating alone. 1997 The American Physical Society.
