Acoustically induced transparency in optically dense resonance medium. Academic Article uri icon


  • It is shown that mechanical vibration (acoustical oscillation) of a solid medium along the propagation of multifrequency laser radiation enables one to control the resonant absorption. There exists an optimal spectral structure of the incident field dependent on vibration amplitude as well as the number and intensity of the frequency components that provides the full resonant transparency. A mechanism of the transparency is discussed. Transparency of this kind is shown to appear also via adiabatic modulation of the atomic transition frequency by an external microwave field.
