  journal={Physical Review A},
The temporal dynamics of stimulated emission is studied, with the particular emphasis on stimulated emission induced by x-ray pulses interacting with nuclei. In typical nuclear forward scattering experiments, the short incident x-ray pulse is accompanied by a huge number of off-resonant background photons. This prompts the question, if stimulated emission can be observed in the delayed nuclear scattering signal which is emitted after the incident pulse has passed. We find that the stimulated… 
Coherent X-ray−optical control of nuclear excitons
A method of shaping single pulses delivered by state-of-the-art X-ray facilities into tunable double pulses is presented, and a temporal stability of the phase control on the few-zeptosecond timescale is demonstrated.
Coherent x-ray-optical control of nuclear excitons with zeptosecond phase-stability
Coherent control of quantum dynamics is key to a multitude of fundamental studies and applications alike. In the visible or longer-wavelength domains, near-resonant light fields have become the
X-Ray Quantum Optics With Mössbauer Nuclei In Thin-Film Cavities
In this thesis thin-film cavities with embedded Mossbauer nuclei probed by near-resonant x-ray light are studied from a quantum optical perspective. A theoretical framework is developed and compact
