Some comments on the Kramers-Heisenberg formula and incoherence properties of stimulated emission

  • B. A. Veklenko


The cross sections for the scattering of resonant radiation by two-level systems which are calculated in the quantum-mechanical and semiclassical theories are different if the number of quanta in the virtual states is greater than one. Analysis of the scattering of light by two-level excited systems provides evidence that these theories give different descriptions of the coherence properties of stimulated emission.
