Abstract:

The purpose of this research was to study the phenomena of multiple quantum processes and to consider possible applications. These processes involve the interaction of more than a single quantum of radiation with an atomic system and are nonlinear in character. An equation of motion approach is used in the solution of the quantum mechanical problem, allowing the calculation of the observable quantities important for the radiation processes considered. From the results of this research it is thus concluded that a quantum mechanical system possesses non linear as well as linear properties and that se nonlinear properties may find application, especially in the submillimeter and optical regions where suitable nonlinear elements do not presently exist.
