Phase-dependent decoherence of optical transitons in Pr3+:LaF3 in the presence of a driving field
The decoherence times of orthogonally phased components of the optical transition dipole moment in a two-level system have been observed to differ by an order of magnitude. This phase anisotropy is observed in coherent transient experiments where an optical driving field is present during extended periods of decoherence. The decoherence time of the component of the dipole moment in phase with the driving field is extended compared to T2, obtained from two-pulse photon echoes, in analogy with...[Show more]
