Abstract : The effect on the spectrum of spontaneous emission from a simple physical system of the application of a classical driving field is studied. The physical system consists of an ensemble of two level atoms interacting with a relaxation mechanism. The single Lorentzian line shape characteristic of the power spectrum of spontaneous emission for the undriven case, is split into components by the driving field. This splitting is associated with the establishment of definite phase relations between the corresponding components of the field spectrum. (Author)
