Collective Spontaneous Emission in Random Media
preprintposted on 2023-01-11, 22:37 authored by Joseph Kraisler, John C Schotland
We consider the theory of spontaneous emission for a random medium of stationary two-level atoms. We investigate the dynamics of the field and atomic probability amplitudes for a one-photon state of the system. At long times and large distances, weshow that the corresponding average probability densities can be determined from the solutions to a pair of kinetic equations.
