Abstract

The problem of resonance Raman scattering and resonance fluorescence from thermally relaxing systems is A general expression obtained earlier is rewritten explicitly in the dipole approximation. Numerical computations are performed on simple model systems and reveal the role that thermal play in the light scatteing process. In particular, the effect of thermal relaxation on interference features, the temeperature dependence of the absorption and the scattering cross-sections (apart from the effect of the initial level distribution) and the transition from thermal relaxation behavior to an irreversible damping are studied in detail.
