Abstract

It is hard to imagine a physical system simpler than a two-level atom driven by a near-resonant coherent-state optical field. Nevertheless this system displays a wealth of interesting phenomena. Intuitive insight into many of these effects is facilitated by thinking in terms of the atom-field dressed states, i. e. the eigenstates of the coupled atom-field system.[1] Insight into other effects, especially those in the transient regime, is provided by the two-level-atom vector model.[2]
