16. In this quantum system, h¯ Ω corresponds to the energy of a real vibrational (phonon) state and the incident photon of energy h¯ ω0 is absorbed by exciting the system up to a virtual state. The Stokes Raman scattering occurs as a result of photon absorption from the ground state to a virtual state, followed by a depopulation to a phonon-excited state. On the other hand, the anti-Stokes Raman scattering is explained as being a result of photon absorption from the phonon-excited state to a virtual state, followed by a depopulation down to the ground state.

An optical material has an absorption coefﬁcient of 10 cm−1 at 400 nm. (a) What thickness of material must you cut to fabricate an optical ﬁlter with optical density of 3 at 400 nm? (b) If you have a laser of 1 W power at this wavelength but you WY062-01 WY062-Sole January 5, 2005 11:28 Char Count= 0 EXERCISES 37 want to illuminate a sample with only 1 m W, how many of these ﬁlters do you need? 4. 0 at a wavelength of 633 nm. (a) Determine the transmittance and the absorbance of the ﬁlter at this wavelength.

5) where σ (ν) is the so-called transition cross section. 6) where the transition cross section σ (ν) (normally given in cm2 ) represents the ability of our system to absorb the incoming radiation of frequency ν. Indeed, the transition cross section is related to the matrix element | < Ψ f |H |Ψ i > | of our two-level system, where Ψ i and Ψ f denote the eigenfunctions of the ground and excited states, respectively, and H is the interaction Hamiltonian between the incoming light and the system.
