Abstract

The resonant action of laser radiation on matter is examined. It is shown that under certain conditions when the levels are sufficiently dense due to their being broadened in the laser field a purely radiative stepwise excitation (dissociation or ionization) mechanism with a step size equal to the laser quantum may operate. A diffusion approximation appropriate for describing coherent effects is developed, and the population dynamics of an N-level oscillator is studied. The results are used to describe “prompt” dissociation and ionization of molecules and atoms. The role of collisions is briefly considered. Some applied possibilities for this mechanism including, in particular, laser isotope separation, are discussed.
