Paper Abstract

A diagrammatic representation of the steady-state solution for the density matrix of a multilevel atom under the action of coherent classical fields is presented. It provides an intuitive interpretation of the terms corresponding to quantum interference and dynamical Stark splitting in the equations describing the effects of atomic coherence, such as lasing without inversion, electromagnetically induced transparency and ultra-large index of refraction.
