Convergent Perturbation Analysis of Intense Coherent Multiphoton Interactions

Abstract

Use has been made of flow graphs to deduce Feenberg perturbation expansions for radiative interactions. It is demonstrated that these expansions can in certain cases be summed to provide closed form expressions for the molecular response. In particular, it is shown that the coherent state response can be obtained by the summation of a continued fraction perturbation expansion for the harmonic oscillator. Anharmonicity in the lower levels is treated and is shown to introduce Rabi flopping identifiable with multiphoton transitions among isolated tightly coupled subsystems of levels. Relevance to laser induced multiphoton excitation and energy level shift calculations in the presence of a strong field are also discussed. © 1979 IEEE
