Quantum coherence excitation onto spin ensembles by resonant Raman optical fields and coherence transfer back to an optical emission are discussed in a three-level optical system composed of inhomogeneously broadened spins, where the spin decay time is much slower than the optical decay time. Dynamic quantum coherent control of the spin excitations and coherence conversion are also discussed at a strong coupling field limit for practical applications of optical information processing.
