Analytic expressions are obtained for the spectrum of the light scattered
when a collimated atomic beam is illuminated at right angles to its path by
a CW monochromatic laser beam tuned to resonance with a two-level
transition. The spectra vary depending on the portion of the interaction
region from which the scattered light emanates. The spectrum of the light
from a finite sub-region of the interaction volume is described as a
function of the location and length of the sub-region, and of the intensity
and frequency of the laser. Several interesting features related to the
turn-on of the interaction as well as to the finite observation interval
