Spontaneous multipole radiation in a condensed medium

Atoms, Spectra, Radiation


The probability of the spontaneous emission of electromagnetic radiation of an arbitrary multipolarity in an infinite homogeneous isotropic nonabsorbent condensed medium with constant permittivity and permeability is determined using the perturbation theory for quantum electrodynamics. The local field inside a sphere is calculated for fields of arbitrary configuration in the medium with the help of the real and virtual cavity models.
