Abstract

The nonlinear-optical properties of a system whose collisional dynamics are strongly affected by intense pump fields are calculated. The four-wave mixing signals can be affected in a dramatic way if the period of the Rabi oscillation is comparable with the correlation time of the collisional mechanism.
