Abstract : The report discusses investigations concerned with high power pulses and spontaneous emission, and associated intrinsic optical frequency modulation. It is established that such frequency modulation must be almost undetectably small for present nanosecond and even picosecond pulses. A method is developed for dealing with frequency shifts in spontaneous emission which avoids serious errors caused by the rotating wave approximation. (Author)
