Frequency up-conversion in a three-level medium without inversion Academic Article uri icon


  • We study a three-level medium in a configuration. The two low-lying levels interact with a strong resonant field and we investigate the amplification conditions for fields resonant between the upper and any of the lower levels. We identify a mechanism by which such amplification is possible. 1991.
