Amplified Spontaneous Emission

  • L. Allen
Conference paper

Abstract

In 1954 Dicke [1] discussed the possibility of a coherent cooperative process between an ensemble of two-level atoms. His paper has become a classic, and discusses the process now known as super-radiance. At the time the paper attracted relatively little attention except that of a few who worked in r.f. spectroscopy.
