Photon echoes of molecular photoassociation

Abstract

Revivals of optical coherence of molecular photoassociation driven by two ultrashort laser pulses are addressed in the Condon approach. Based on textbook examples and numerical simulation of KrF excimer molecules, a prediction is made about an existence of photon echo on free-bound transitions. Delayed rise and fall of nonlinear polarization in the half-collisions are to be resulted from the resonant quantum states interference whether it be in gas, liquid or solid phases.Comment: 15 pages and 5 figures presented at ICONO '98'(Moscow, 1998): Fundamental Aspects of Laser-Matter Interaction, New Nonlinear Optical Materials and Physics of Low-Dimensional Structure
