Title:
Carrier-envelope phase sensitive inversion in two-level systems 
Abstract:
We theoretically study the carrier-envelope phase-dependent inversion generated in a two-level system by excitation with a few-cycle pulse. On the basis of the invariance of the inversion under time reversal of the exciting field, parameters are introduced to characterize the phase sensitivity of the induced inversion. Linear and nonlinear phase effects are numerically studied for rectangular and sinc-shaped pulses. Furthermore, analytical results are obtained in the limits of weak fields, as we...    »
