Conference paper


Photon echo decays in molecular solids are profoundly influenced by intermolecular interactions. For example, in organic mixed molecular crystals the echo decay is strongly dependent on the impurity concentration.1–4,8 Previous theories2–4 deal mostly with the effect of static dipole-dipole coupling on the echo decay. In this paper, we study the combined effect of dipole-dipole coupling and superradiance,5–7 on the photon echo.
