Laser control of Mossbauer spectra as a way to gamma-ray lasing1We dedicate this paper to Marlan Scully, quantum cowboy and our hero in science, who has been teaching us physics for many years.1 Academic Article uri icon


  • We give a comparative analysis of basic schemes of optical control of Mossbauer spectra providing an elimination of resonant absorption by a gamma-ray nuclear transition and suggest a novel scheme of frequency non-selective optical pumping which turns out to be the most promising for a realization of induced gain in the gamma-ray range.
