Abstract

A novel form of phenomenological optical Bloch equations, with density matrix elements depending both on the number of laser quanta in the pumped molecular vibrational mode and on the number of quanta dumped into the thermal bath formed by the remaining vibrational modes, is used to derive rate equations for multiple photon excitation of polyatomic molecules.
