In a single-atom double-resonance experiment involving a strong and a weak transition, quantum jumps on the weak transition cause the resonance fluorescence of the strong transition to turn on and off randomly in time when observed over intervals long compared to the lifetime of the strong transition but short compared to that of the weak transition. Here we present a theory of this intermittent atomic fluorescence for the case of coherent excitation.
