Near Resonant Optical Absorption by a System Coupled with Two Laser Beams
Keywords:two-laser beam spectroscopy, absorption coefficient, quantum optics, many-body interaction, non-linear optics
The structure of a solution of the generalized Maxwell–Bloch system of equations describing the strongly pumped interacting two-level atoms is discussed. This structure is represented by means of the corresponding differential equations for each contributing process. The interaction between the processes is introduced through the interaction integral and is illustrated by the specific system of graphs. The method allows one to describe the quantum-field-induced long-range interaction prevailing over short-range collisions and causing the broadening, narrowing, and shifts of an absorption line shape. The description is given in terms of the interaction integrals which couple the collective atomic polarization and population inversion. The contributions from different effects are analyzed with the use of the additivity of the corresponding absorption/reemission rates.
