Abstract

In the following sections, we will consider the problems connected with collisions of a radiating atom with atomic particles in external fields that have an influence on the elementary collision event itself. The influence of external fields is of importance for resonance processes where the external electromagnetic (E.M.) field may result in detuning the resonance or, oppositely, coming into resonance. Of principal importance are the collisions of atoms with particles in a resonant laser field ξ 0 cos ωt, whose frequency ω is close to the frequency ω 0 of the atomic transition. These conditions respond to the standard formulation of nonlinear spectroscopy problems with the essential difference that the field ω 0 influences not only relaxation kinetics, but the collision event itself. Accounting for multiparticle atomic collisions with perturbing particles in a resonant E.M. field is also of great importance because it is the case when the time of the collision and the time between collisions cannot be separated. The consideration of the problems mentioned has its foundation on [11.1–8].
