We discuss the quantum memory protocol based on a polarization-sensitive control of the field and atomic spin subsystems in the process of offresonant coherent Raman scattering of light by spatially extended and optically thick atomic sample. The protocol can be adjusted for atoms, which spin angular momentum ≥ 1, and applied for deterministic quantum memory storage and retrieval schemes. The proposed protocol involves just a single pass of light through atomic ensemble without the need for elaborate pulse shaping or quantum feedback. As a practically relevant example we consider the interaction of a light pulse with hyperfine components of D1 line of 87Rb.
