Quantum-Electrodynamic Processes Near the Surface


It is shown that coherent processes of elastic scattering of resonant radiation form a “buffer” electromagnetic field near the boundary of excited media. This part of radiation is not governed by the standard refractive index, but precisely this part of radiation forms the beams reflected and refracted by the excited medium. The presence of the “buffer” field causes the suppression of stimulated emission near the boundary and leads to the appearance of a frequency angular broadening of the beam transmitted through a thin film of excited atoms at an oblique angle.
