We present numerical calculations on the propagation of resonant optical pulse pairs in an absorbing medium of three-level Λ systems taking into account near dipole-dipole (NDD) interactions. We find that the NDD interactions reduce the effect of the electromagnetically induced transparency and the pulse group velocity. The NDD effect on phase modulation is also studied.
