Periodically driven two-mode optical systems

Lam, Ping Koy


We consider a two-level atom driven by modulated light and find that complete population inversion can be induced by light without any resonant frequency component. This is in contrast to the familiar case of monochromatic driving in which complete population inversion is only possible with resonant light. This result concerns experimentally realizable systems and hence the effect of spontaneous emission is also considered. We also relate our work to other recent works on quantum...[Show more]
