Basic models of lasing without inversion: general form of amplification condition and problem of self-consistency Academic Article uri icon


  • We derive an amplification condition which generalizes the traditional population inversion requirement for the basic schemes of inversionless amplification. We develop a self-consistent quantum approach for the description of such schemes and demonstrate the limitations of the traditional phenomenological approach.
