The problem of resonance fluorescence from a two-level atom that is driven near resonance by a laser beam of finite bandwidth is tackled via the Heisenberg equations of motion, by a simple generalization of our previous treatment. It is found that the two-time intensity correlation function is again factorizable into a product of the mean light intensities at the two times, each of which is slightly modified under broad-band excitation from its value under monochromatic excitation. The spectrum of the fluorescence is affected rather more drastically, and, in general, becomes asymmetric under broad-band excitation.
