Spontaneous Emission from the Ground Atomic State due to Its Crossing with the Dynamic Stark Level

  • Olga Kocharovskaya
  • Y. V. Radeonychev


The ground state of the driven three-level atomic system becomes unstable as a result of its spontaneous decay to the dynamic Stark level when the last one falls below this state. Different peculiarities of the atomic response may appear depending on the intensity and detuning of the driving field providing such level crossing.
