FREQUENCY-SPECTRUM OF THE SIGNAL WAVE IN RESONANT 4-WAVE-MIXING INDUCED BY BROAD-BANDWIDTH LASERS

Abstract:

We develop a theory of near-resonant four-wave mixing induced by broad-bandwidth chaotic fields in a medium composed of two-level atoms. By solving the equations of motion for the elements of the atomic density matrix using an appropriate decorrelation approximation, we derive an analytic expression for the frequency spectrum of the signal wave for the case of the bandwidth of the fluctuations of the pump field exceeding the other relaxation rates in the problem. The probe wave is considered ...
