Abstract
A two level atom driven by a strong resonant field and coupled to a structured reservoir is studied. The generalized master equation describing the evolution of the atom is derived under the Born-Markov approximation. To derive the master equation the dressing transformation on the atomic operators is performed first and next the dressed operators are coupled to the reservoir and the corresponding damping rates are calculated. The modifications introduced by a strong field and/or by the reservoir with non-flat density of modes lead to non-standard terms in the master equation, some of which are reminiscent of terms known for squeezed vacuum reservoirs although the reservoir is not a squeezed vacuum. The optical Bloch equations based on this generalized master equation are obtained and solved for the steady state. The resonance fluorescence spectra of the atom are shortly discussed.
