The Dynamics of Quantum Systems for Resonant Interactions with Strong Nonstationary Fields

Abstract

One of the simplest and yet fundamental models used in quantum electronics to describe the resonant interaction of light with matter is the two-level system. The reason for this is that, in spite of its simplicity, the two-level model is capable of describing most of the effects observed in real systems, in particular, most of the nonlinear effects. One of the main manifestations of the quantum nature of the two-level system is its temporal dynamics under the action of a resonant (or quasi-resonant) driving force. Probably the most interesting effect is related to the so-called Rabi oscillations with their frequencies determined by the intensity and frequency of the driving field. When both these parameters of the driving field change rapidly, the Rabi oscillations as well as the entire dynamics become very complicated.
