Phase-sensitive dynamics of bichromatically driven two-level atoms


Journal Article

Observations of qualitatively different coherent transient phenomena associated with bichromatic optical excitation are reported. The effects demonstrated include the control of atomic dynamics through a variation of the initial relative phase of the driving fields and the polarization of population within atom-field dressed states. The dynamics observed are fundamentally more complex than those characteristic of monochromatically driven atoms. © 1994 The American Physical Society.
