A theory of dispersive soliton of the self-induced transparency in a medium consisting of atoms or semiconductor quantum dots of two types is considered. A two-component medium is modeled by a set of two-level atoms of two types embedded into a conductive host material. These types of atoms correspond to passive atoms (attenuator atoms) and active atoms (amplifier atoms) with inverse population of the energetic levels. The complete solution is given of the Maxwell-Bloch equations for ensembles of two-type atoms with different parameters and different initial conditions by inverse scattering transform. The solutions of the Maxwell-Bloch equations for many-component atomic systems by inverse scattering transform are also discussed. The influence of the difference between dipole moments of atoms, the longitudinal and transverse relaxation times, pumping, and conductivity on the soliton is taken into account by means of perturbation theory. The memory effects are described in terms of generalized non-Markovian optical Bloch equations. The condition of a balance between the energy supplied and lost is obtained.
