Laser without population inversion and coherent trapping Academic Article uri icon


  • It is shown that in the basis of absorbing and nonabsorbing states of coherent trapping, the atomic preparation in laser without inversion is described as a depopulation pumping. Optical Bloch equations in that basis are derived for Λ and double-Λ configurations. Numerical results for realization of laser without inversion in a in 87Rb double-Λ configuration are presented. © 1991.
