Intensity-Dependent Resonance Light Scattering
Interesting modifications of the spectrum of (near-) resonance scattered light occur when the incident field intensity is large enough to induce atomic transitions at a rate comparable to or greater than the rate of relaxation-induced transitions, i.e., when the absorption line shape of the incident field is broadened by its own intensity. Treated here will be the case of a single, stationary, homogeneously broadened atom, driven by an incident field which resonantly couples only two atomic states |0> and |1>, though coupling to other levels through relaxation processes will be allowed.
