Master-Equation Approach to Spontaneous Emission. III. Many-Body Aspects of Emission from Two-Level Atoms and the Effect of Inhomogeneous Broadening Academic Article uri icon


  • A general theory of spontaneous emission was developed in Papers I and II of this series. In the present paper, the mastre equation describing spontaneous emission from N identical two-level atoms is investigated further. It is shown that the equation of motion for the p(
