Research outputpeer-review


Possible generation of light-induced harmonic population gratings in a quantum system by two half-cycle pulses is studied using the approximate solution of the Schrodinger equation. The case is considered where the duration of pulses is shorter than the resonance transition periods in the system and the pulses do not overlap in the medium. The grating modulation depth is determined by the pulse electric area.
