Abstract
Coherent four-photon scattering of light due to excited and autoionizing states of atomic systems is considered. We analyze the influence of one-photon resonances at the frequency of the anti-Stokes signal and at the frequency of the pump wave on the shape of the spectrum of four-photon scattering. We derive analytical expressions for the line shapes of four-photon scattering involving one-photon resonances with allowance for phase-matching conditions and variation in the populations of excited states for limiting regimes of tight focusing and strong absorption in a medium with a cubic nonlinearity. The calculated spectra of four-photon scattering include the interference of resonant and nonresonant components of the third-order nonlinear susceptibility with allowance for one-photon saturation. We develop a method for normalizing experimental spectra of four-photon scattering with one-photon resonances that takes into account distortion of spectral lines due to the influence of phase mismatch and one- photon absorption.
