Abstract:

We present here a theoretical treatment of the nonlinear effect that occurs when the atoms scattering the light are disturbed by foreign particles that fly upon them from one side. We show that a quasi-constant multipole moment is induced in these atoms because of the anisotropy of such a medium. The interaction between this moment and the external radiation should yield the harmonics of the fundamental frequency in the spectrum of scattered radiation.
