Abstract

We discuss the solutions of the Bloch equations of a two-level atom that resonantly interacts with a laser pulse train. In terms of solutions, we calculate the radiation spectrum of the two-level atom driven by the laser pulse train and obtain the multipeak structure. The appearance of the multipeak structure in the radiation spectrum depends both on the coupling strength of the atom with the side frequencies of the laser pulse train and on the pulse duration.
