Theory of Atomic Excitation by Multiple Laser Pulses
The problem of preparing multilevel atoms or molecules in high-lying levels using one or more laser pulses is of considerable importance in many problems. Few if any systematic methods designed specifically for multilevel excitation have been proposed. In this note we report new exact results in the theory of atomic excitation by multiple laser pulses.
