Paper Abstract

Each of three basic coherent transient phenomena (optical nutation, free polarization decay photon echo) can be generated by sufficiently abrupt modulation of the interaction between the matter and radiation. This can be performed by rapid commutation of either radiation parameters, or the parameters of the matter. I present here comparative analysis of these two approaches (the first one, using electro-optical switching of the resonant laser power to create the pulses for the gas excitation and the second one, based on the Stark switching of vibro-rotational levels in a gas, excited by CW laser radiation), used in our experiments in molecular gases, from the point of view of both their capability to generate various coherent transients and their sensitivity to the intensity of laser radiation.
