 Abstract: The different behavior of first-order interferences and second-order correlations are investigated for the case of two coherently excited atoms. For intensity measurements this problem is in many respects equivalent to Young's double-slit experiment and was investigated in an experiment by Eichmann [Phys. Rev. Lett. 70, 2359 (1993)] and later analyzed in detail by Itano [Phys. Rev. A 57, 4176 (1998)]. Our results show that in cases where the intensity interferences disappear the intensity-intensity correlations can display an interference pattern with a visibility of up to 100%. The contrast depends on the polarization selected for the detection and is independent of the strength of the driving field. The nonclassical nature of the calculated intensity-intensity correlations is also discussed.
