Abstract

The shape of resonances observable on atoms and corresponding to the resonant absorption of one optical or RF photon is modified when the intensity of the electromagnetic wave increases: the resonance is shifted and broadened; the variation of its amplitude is no more described by a simple power law. Furthermore, new higher order resonances appear, corresponding to the absorption of several photons by the same atom.
