The Negative Absorption of Radiation

  title={The Negative Absorption of Radiation},
  author={C. Raman and K. S. Krishnan},
IN Einstein's celebrated derivation of the Planck radiation formula, an equilibrium is considered to exist between three elementary processes: (1) a spontaneous emission from the atoms, (2) an absorption of energy by the atoms proportional to the energy density in the field, and (3) an induced emission of energy from the atoms, also proportional to the energy density. The third process can be described as a negative absorption of radiation, and is quite characteristic for Einstein's theory, as… Expand
FROM THE HISTORY OF PHYSICS: The discovery of combination scattering of light in Russia and India
The history of the discovery of combination (Raman) scattering of light in Moscow and Calcutta is briefly described. Moscow physicists observed the lines due to the new effect on February 21, 1928Expand
Valentin A. Fabrikant: negative absorption, his 1951 patent application for amplification of electromagnetic radiation (ultraviolet, visible, infrared and radio spectral regions) and his experiments
This paper is devoted to Moscow physicist Valentin A. Fabrikant who is known for his 1939 thesis with suggestion of experiments on light amplification directly proving the existence of negativeExpand
Time interval and lattice vibration in Raman effect, photoelectric effect and plane mirror reflection
Time interval between the incident and scattered photon in Raman effect and absorption of photon and emission of electron in photoelectric effect has not been determined till now. This is becauseExpand
The Raman effect in femto- and attosecond physics
The interaction of ultrashort light pulses with matter is accompanied by a variety of new phenomena involving Raman scattering due to vibrational and rotational modes of molecules, electronic statesExpand
Studies of the electrical and optical properties of defects in ion implanted silicon
Ion implantation is a technique commonly used in the fabrication of semiconductor devices. This process creates lattice damage which can adversely affect the device efficiency. Conversely,Expand
Magnetic restructuring of water
The present work has shown that a simple, noninvasive system for measuring the heart rate of avian embryos and hatchlings by means of a piezoelectric film is feasible and effective. Expand
Cooper pairing and fluctuations in Fe-based superconductors
Unconventional superconductivity generally occurs in proximity to magnetic phases. Raman spectroscopy affords a window into most of the related excitations including pairing interactions. Thus, theExpand

India lost a distinguished physicist and philosopher in the death of Kariamanikkam Srinivasa Krishnan, whose contributions to science and his achievements especially in physics won international recognition. Expand
Optical Spectroscopy for Noninvasive Monitoring of Stem Cell Differentiation
There is a requirement for a noninvasive technique to monitor stem cell differentiation, and Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy has demonstrated its ability to distinguish between stem cells and their derivatives, and CARS microscopy is highlighted as the technique with most promise for future applications.

An Inaugural Dissertation
A task in statistics is to find meaningful associations or dependencies between multivariate random variables or in multivariate, time-dependent stochastic processes. Hawkes (1971) introduced theExpand
