Abstract

Various phenomena of spectral line broadening connected with the most interesting applications of atomic spectroscopy to plasma diagnostics, astrophysics, laser physics, and other areas are considered in this chapter. The presentation of the general theory of impact broadening is based on the density-matrix and quantum kinetic equation methods. These methods permit not only the line shape to be described in the case of spontaneous emission or linear absorption, but also allow nonlinear effects arising in laser spectroscopy to be considered. There are many books and review articles discussing the progress in theoretical and experimental work on the problem of spectral lines broadening [7.1-16]. For an extensive bibliography on line shapes see [7.17-19]. For a brief review of recent developments in the theory with stress to applications to nonlinear laser spectroscopy see [7.20].
