  1. Fernández-Soler, JJ; Font, JL; Vilaseca, R; Gauthier, DJ; Kul’minskii, A; Pfister, O, Two-photon amplification and lasing in laser-driven potassium atoms: Theoretical analysis, Physical Review A, vol. 65 no. 3 (February, 2002), pp. 031803/1-031803/4 [doi] .

    A semi-classical model of the interaction between two intense electromagnetic fields with fixed states of polarization and a collection of potassium atoms is introduced. The model is used to explain features of the recent two-photon amplification and lasing experiments. The model takes into account the population and coherence effects brought about by the presence of the intense drive and probe (or lasing) fields as well as the details of the hyperfine level manifolds involved in the atom-field interaction.
