Microscopic approach to coherent population trapping state and its relaxation in a dense medium. Academic Article uri icon


  • Using a master equation with cooperative interaction of radiative nature included, we demonstrate the generation and relaxation characteristics of the coherent population trapping state. We also show how the microscopic master equation in the mean field approximation leads to density matrix equations obtained from local field considerations.
