  • We analyze transient properties of light amplification without population inversion (LWI) in a closed three-level @sV -type system and study the system evolution from transient LWI into steady-state LWI. From the time evolution of the atomic coherence and population distribution with and without an incoherent pump field, we elucidate the light amplification mechanism and derive the conditions under which the @sV system exhibits LWI in any state basis. We derive analytical solution for the steady-state LWI and discuss other mechanisms of light amplification such as stimulated Raman scattering and population inversion in the dressed states. © 1996 The American Physical Society.
