Paper Abstract

Coherent phase control under the interaction between bichromatic radiation with multiple frequencies and quantum systems is the topic of the last time investigations both experimental and theoretical. This type of nonlinear optical control enables one to manipulate the characteristics of radiation processes by the change of the relative phase of bichromatic field. The present study is devoted to the theoretical analysis of the coherent control of two-level system behavior under bichromatic excitation in the frame of perturbation approach. The general expressions have been derived which are valid for any integer ratio n between the frequencies of monochromatic components of radiation. Obtained formulas describe the system characteristics as functions of relative phase of bichromatic field and other radiation parameters. Bichromatic excitation of Rubidium atom is considered as numerical example.
