Abstract:

The surface-dressed optical Bloch equations for a two-level atom near a metal surface are solved for the case of a strong driving field. An analytic form is obtained for the adatomic resonance fluorescence spectrum. Due to the multiphoton effects of the surface-reflected field and the surface plasmon resonance, the three-peak spectrum is strongly influenced by the surface. A unique surface-induced asymmetry in the side peaks is revealed.
