Lasing without inversion: A new path to gamma-ray laser Academic Article uri icon


  • We show that coherent optical drive of electrons can provide gain at gamma-ray nuclear transitions without the requirement of population inversion due to the hyperfine coupling between electrons and nuclei. This suggests a new path for a solution of one of the most challenging problems in modern physics - realization of a gamma-ray laser. Copyright © 1999 by MANK "Hayκa/Interperiodica".
