The spectrum of light scattered by a two-level atom in an intense laser beam with amplitude modulated light is calculated. The spectrum is obtained by evaluating the Fourier transform of the autocorrelation function of the dipole moment. The modulation introduces new components in both the coherent and incoherent parts of the frequency distribution. The total intensity when plotted as a function... Plus

    Summary
    The spectrum of light scattered by a two-level atom in an intense laser beam with amplitude modulated light is calculated. The spectrum is obtained by evaluating the Fourier transform of the autocorrelation function of the dipole moment. The modulation introduces new components in both the coherent and incoherent parts of the frequency distribution. The total intensity when plotted as a function of the average Rabi frequency exhibits parametric resonances.
