An absorption of a weak pulse by two identical atoms moving in a trap is investigated. Based on atom-light interactions we present a microscopic model of a two-body wave function diagnosis. We study the influence of pulse properties on the results. We show that a pulse duration impacts the resulting one-photon and two-photons absorption probabilities significantly.
