Quantum theory of laser cooling: Statistical description of the process dynamics
Abstract
The setting time of the stationary distribution over translational degrees of freedom of twolevel atoms in the field of a onedimensional standing light wave is studied. The dependences of this time on the problem parameters such as the light wave intensity, frequency detuning, and atom mass are obtained. Calculations are performed on the basis of the quantummechanical equation for the atomic density matrix taking completely into account the recoil and spatial localization effects in an arbitrarily intense light field.

Quantum statistical theory of the ring laser
A unified quantum treatment is presented for bidirectional twomode ring lasers using the approach of Haken and coworkers. Equations of motion for the reduced density matrix of the field have been derived and used to study the fluctuation properties of the radiation field in different kinds of active media. The steadystate photon number distribution for an inhomogeneously broadened gas ring laser is derived. It is shown that for equal losses the relative fluctuations and normalized cross correlation of the photon numbers approach values 1/3 and 1/3, respectively, for large excitations. For unequal losses the laser may emit typical singlemode lasermore » 
Quantum dynamics with fermion coupled coherent states: Theory and application to electron dynamics in laser fields
We present an alternate version of the coupledcoherentstate method, specifically adapted for solving the timedependent Schroedinger equation for multielectron dynamics in atoms and molecules. This theory takes explicit account of the exchange symmetry of fermion particles, and it uses fermion molecular dynamics to propagate trajectories. As a demonstration, calculations in the He atom are performed using the full Hamiltonian and accurate experimental parameters. Single and doubleionization yields by 160fs and 780nm laser pulses are calculated as a function of field intensity in the range 10{sup 14}10{sup 16} W/cm{sup 2}, and good agreement with experiments by Walker et al. is obtained.more »
