Quantum Optics of Atomic Wave-Packets
Languages of publication
Recent progress in production and control of the atomic wave-packets calls for re-examination of the most fundamental quantum optical processes. We have examined the evolution of the atomic wave-packet resonantly driven by the monochromatic laser beam and the spontaneous emission from an extended atom. We stress the role of Doppler shifts in the dephasing of the atomic dipole. New effects of single laser pulse photon echo and homogeneous Doppler modification of the emission line are discussed.
