A time-resolved study of cone emission (CE) was carried out. Focus was on the case where a medium consisting of "two-level" atoms is perturbed by laser pulses of some nanosecond duration and 1-10-GHz linewidth, blue detuned (∼100 GHz) from resonance, and with CE occurring on the red side of the atomic resonance in a broad frequency range typically 1-2 times the laser detuning and at 10-50-mrad angle. Data from this study indicate that a full interpretation of CE should be based on nonperturbative and nonstationary theory including the coupled effects of both the incident and CE fields on the medium as well as atomic correlation effects.
