Fe b 20 07 Multiatom cooperative emission following single - photon absorption : Dicke - state dynamics


We investigate conditions under which multiatom absorption of a single photon leads to cooperative decay. Our analysis reveals the symmetry properties of the multiatom Dicke states underlying the cooperative decay dynamics and their spatio-temporal manifestations, particularly, the forward-directed spontaneous emission investigated by Scully et al. Dicke… (More)
