Paper Abstract

There is an interest in consideration of the propagation of the Gaussian monochromatic light beams through a cell filled with the medium of two-level atoms (in our case, the atomic potassium vapor), which has (at small detuning from resonant transition to low or high frequencies) the refractive index other than unity (n > 1 for v < v01 and n < 1 for v > v01, where v is the light frequency and v01 is the resonant-transition frequency). In this case, the properties of the radiation passed through the cell are changed. In the very close proximity of the resonance, the nonlinear processes (the three-photon electronic stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) and the six-photon parametric scattering (SPS)) play a crucial role. It is precisely these processes in the two-level medium that determine the irreversibly transformed spectral and angular structure of the light beams at the output of the cell.
