9 May 2001 Excitation of antiprotonic helium by a single laser pulse of variable intensity

We report the results of numerical modeling of the coherent action of a single short laser pulse on a multilevel quantum system of metastable and short-lived states of antiprotonic helium. Increasing the pulse intensity we observed more new states getting involved into the coherent interaction, their populations being affected by the pulse. Examples of intensity-dependent dynamics of the metastable states populations are considered. Extraction of spectroscopic information about the states of antiprotonic helium from the experiments with fixed-frequency variable-intensity laser pulses is discussed.
