The time dependence of the two-photon absorption process is experimentally
investigated in the low intensity regime as a function of laser linewidth,
Doppler width, polarisation and delay between pulses, using 5 ns pulses at
two different frequencies. Excellent agreement is found between experiment
and the theoretical predictions of Allen and Stroud. The experiment
arguments and expands earlier work on the dependence of linewidth in the
two-photon process. The lineshape of the Hansch-type laser producing the
pulses is shown to be best described by a Gaussian rather than a Lorentzian
or as the result of an Ornstein-Uhlenbeck process.
