We apply the optimal control technique (OCX) to design an optical pulse pair that controls the population transfer in a medium of three-level atoms. The absorption and reshaping of the controlling pulses by the medium are taken into account. The efficiency of the population transfer is improved significantly compared with designs that do not incorporate pulse absorption and reshaping.
