We perform nonperturbative analysis of forward scattering of resonance laser light on atoms in magnetic field when the laser drives transitions between states with total angular momenta Fϭ1,2 and study the role of the induced higher-order multipole moments in the forward-scattering signal. It is shown how the multipole moments affect these signals and why not all possible multipoles are revealed for some transitions. The analysis is performed in terms of density-matrix formalism and in terms ofdoi:10.1103/physreva.54.2238 pmid:9913716 fatcat:raqrcojg7fdtri46c6uuzo3ri4
