The time development of adiabatic two-photon absorption
I. Low intensity regime

L. Allen, K. A. Eagles, and C. R. Stroud, Jr.

J. Phys. B 15, 1643 (1982).


The time dependence of the two-photon absorption process is experimentally investigated in the low intensity regime as a function of laser linewidth, Doppler width, polarisation and delay between pulses, using 5 ns pulses at two different frequencies. Excellent agreement is found between experiment and the theoretical predictions of Allen and Stroud. The experiment arguments and expands earlier work on the dependence of linewidth in the two-photon process. The lineshape of the Hansch-type laser producing the pulses is shown to be best described by a Gaussian rather than a Lorentzian or as the result of an Ornstein-Uhlenbeck process.
