Generalization of the Maxwell-Bloch equations to the case of strong atom-field coupling.
Additional Document Info
We derive the generalized set of Maxwell-Bloch equations which takes into account the dependence of relaxation coefficients on the amplitude and frequency of the coherent field. This has interesting implications in many problems in quantum optics and laser physics, e.g., the problem of lasing without inversion due to a strong coherent generating field. 1994 The American Physical Society.
