Observation of phase-sensitive temporal correlations in the resonance fluorescence from two-level atoms.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

We have made what we believe is the first observation of phase-dependent temporal correlations in the fluorescent field emitted by coherently driven two-level atoms in free space. We measured the temporal fluctuations of the fluorescent field when the resonant driving field was in phase and out of phase with the local-oscillator field.
