ABSTRACT
The problem of probe-field spectrum is considered for a three-level ion placed in a field of an intense standing light wave. The ion interaction with plasma and the velocity-changing Coulomb scattering are taken into account within the weak-collision model. The system of kinetic equations for the density matrix is solved by the expansion in spatial harmonics and eigenfunctions of the collision operator. The profile of nonlinear addition to the probe-wave absorption is determined for various values of the effective ion–ion collision frequencies and various amplitudes and frequencies of standing wave. It is shown that the broadening of the central nonlinear structure in the spectrum is caused by the Coulomb dephasing effect. The computational results are in qualitative agreement with the available experimental data. © 2004 MAIK “Nauka / Interperiodica”.
