We extend the theory to describe the quantum light memory in type atoms with considering (lower levels coherency decay rate) and detuning for the probe and the control fields. We obtain that with considering these parameters, group velocity of the probe pulse does not tend to zero by turning off the control field. We show that there are considerable decay for the probe pulse and the stored information. Also, it is inferred that the light field does not tend to zero when the control field is

In addition, we obtain that in the off-resonance case there is considerable distortion of the output light pulse (with fast oscillations) that destroys the stored information. Then we present the limitations on detuning (bandwidths) of the probe and the control fields to achieve negligible distortion. We finally present the numerical calculations and compare them with obtained analytical results.
