Title: Suppression and coherent control of free-induction-decay emission in multilevel systems
Author: de Araujo, LEE
Abstract: In this paper, I study the coherent control and suppression of the free-induction-decay emission associated with the decay from an excited multilevel atom to its ground state. It is shown here that a strong and ultrashort coupling pulse, resonant with the excited states and a lower state other than the ground state, can induce destructive quantum interferences in the decay process. The suppression is temporary and the free-induction-decay signal reappears one quantum-beat period (of the excited states) later. A sequence of equally spaced, ultrashort coupling pulses can control the moment the free-induction-decay emission occurs.
