Scattering of an exponential pulse by a single atom    [PDF]

Markus Sondermann, Gerd Leuchs
We discuss the scattering of a light pulse by a single atom in free space using a purely semi-classical framework. The atom is treated as a linear elastic scatterer allowing to treat each spectral component of the incident pulse separately. For an increasing exponential pulse with a dipole radiation pattern incident from full solid angle the spectrum resulting from interference of incident and scattered components is a decreasing exponential pulse.
