Abstract

A numerical analysis is presented of several potential pulsed-laser applications of adiabatic population inversion in atoms or molecules. A simple numerical method is demonstrated for evaluating adiabatic processes in multilevel systems for both swept-frequency and resonant, time-delayed pulses. Adiabatic inversion with time-delayed pulses is generalized to systems with any number of levels. The effect of Doppler broadening on time-delayed adiabatic pumping of a three-level system is investigated.
