Coherent Phenomena in Glasses

  • J. Joffrin
  • B. Golding

Abstract

Concepts underlying and experiments revealing coherent phenomena in glasses and other disordered solids are reviewed. The description of low energy excitations in glasses in terms of “two level systems” (TLS) permits analogy with the rich variety of coherent experiments familiar in electron spin- and nuclear magnetic resonance. Both elastic and electric field pulses have been employed to reveal saturation of absorption, free induction decay, self induced transparency and both spontaneous and stimulated echoes in glasses at low temperatures. Information provided by these experiments on the nature of TLS in glasses is reviewed.
