Abstract

We show that electromagnetically induced transparency suppresses nonlinear absorption of all orders in a multilevel atomic system and leads to selective, multiphoton excitation of resonantly coupled atomic states. Under appropriate conditions, higher-order nonlinear absorption becomes dominant and selective steady-state population inversion is created among the resonantly coupled states.
