abstract

  • The emission of strongly driven two-level-like Ba atoms into the modes of an optical cavity has been studied as a function of cavity tuning and Ba density. At low densities, the cavity-mode emission viewed as a function of cavity tuning is identical in form to the three-peaked Mollow emission spectrum. At high densities, however, the cavity-mode emission is strongly amplified (attenuated) when the cavity is tuned to the frequency of one (the other) Mollow sideband. It is predicted that modest increases in Ba density will cause lasing to occur in this system. © 1989 The American Physical Society.
