Cooperative Effects in Atomic Metal Vapors
In this article we present a summary of some of the preliminary work we have done at Columbia University on the observation of Dicke superradiance in atomic metal vapors. In addition we discuss optical three-wave mixing, a novel effect which is often observed to occur simultaneously with the Dicke superradiance.
