Multiphoton transitions for the harmonic oscillator

Multiphoton transitions for the harmonic oscillator
Multiphoton transitions for the harmonic oscillator
2- and 3-photon electric dipole transitions for the harmonic oscillator are shown to have zero intensity. This is extended to the general cases of ? v = n and ? v = n ?2 for n -photon transitions. Although not proved in general, it seems likely that all multiphoton transition moments vanish. This suggests that electric dipole multiphoton transition intensity is due to anharmonicity.

Abstract

2- and 3-photon electric dipole transitions for the harmonic oscillator are shown to have zero intensity. This is extended to the general cases of ? v = n and ? v = n ?2 for n -photon transitions. Although not proved in general, it seems likely that all multiphoton transition moments vanish. This suggests that electric dipole multiphoton transition intensity is due to anharmonicity.
