Title: Nonlinear Absorption Of Monochromatic Radiation Near A Gas-medium Resonance
Author: Vasconcellos J.I.C.
Abstract: Using the exact solution for a sine-driven two-level system we have calculated the nonlinear absorption coefficient of a gas of two-level molecules with homogeneous (hard collisions, spontaneous decay) and inhomogeneous (Doppler effect) broadening mechanisms. We have studied the dependence of the form of the absorption lines on relaxation parameters, on the strength of the electric field, and for various ratios between the homogeneous and inhomogeneous linewidths. We include considerations about saturation of the medium caused by the external field that gives rise to the so-called power broadening of the spectral lines. The dependence of the linewidth on the saturation parameters and on the relaxation parameters is determined. These parameters appear in the ratio of the purely homogeneous and purely inhomogeneous linewidths. Asymptotic behaviors of this linewidth for the homogeneous limit and for the inhomogeneous limit are also determined. © 1979 The American Physical Society.
