Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


We present a model for simulating atomic dipole dephasing within the Monte-Carlo wave function formalism which leads to the same results as the standard density-matrix formalism. In this model dipole dephasing processes are accounted by quantum-jumps into one of the atomic energy eigenstates. This fact allows us to obtain analytical expressions for the effects of elastic collisions on the various physical processes responsible for amplification without population inversion in a cascade three-level atomic configuration.
