Abstract:

The thermalization of coherent multiphoton excitation of molecules is examined. An inspection of the level distribution of a driven anharmonic oscillator, which is subject to energy and phase dissipation to a bath, reveals that phase relaxation dephasing due to the bath perturbation plays a major role in the thermalization process. Keywords Thermalization Multiphoton excitation Laser-driven Anharmonic oscillator Energy relaxation Phase relaxation Density matrix.
