Paper Abstract

We study resonant four-wave mixing process (omega) 4 equals (omega) 1 minus (omega) 2 plus (omega) 3 under conditions of coherent population trapping (CPT) when radiations with frequencies (omega) 1,2 are strong, and (omega) 1 minus (omega) 2 equals (omega) 20 ((omega) 20 is a frequency of electrodipole-forbidden transition). It is shown that under the CPT sufficiently large nonlinear polarization (the same as linear polarization or higher) may be created. We show that in atomic Ba vapor for cw lasers quantum conversion efficiency can be as high as several tens percent.
