Abstract

The general steady-state solution of the density matrix equations for a Doppler broadened three-level system irradiated by two resonant standing-wave laser beams of arbritrary intensity is analyzed. The solution is expressed in a matrix continued fraction form, that involves 4×4 matrices in important configurations and is convenient for numerical computations. Some representative cases including the absorption spectra for a probe laser of arbitrary intensity, the Doppler-free multiphoton resonances and the optically pumped lasers are analyzed numerically in connection with previous experimental investigations. © 1984 Springer-Verlag.
