The parametric Doppler effect upon oblique incidence of probe radiation

  • N. N. Rozanov
Nonlinear and Quantum Optics


Transformation of frequency and intensity of probe radiation obliquely incident on a moving inhomogeneity induced by an intense laser radiation in a nonlinear medium is analyzed. The dependences of frequency and intensity of radiation reflected from the inhomogeneity have been found for a variant of frequency dispersion corresponding to collision-free plasma. These dependences possess singularities under conditions corresponding to the Vavilov-Cherenkov effect. The initially weak noise components of probe radiation increase in the reflected radiation up to a considerable value.
