Mazer action in a bimodal cavity Academic Article uri icon


  • In this study, the master equation for the reduced density operator of the field in the two-mode micromaser pumped by ultracold -type three-level atoms was derived. The steady state photon probability distribution under the principle of detailed balance was obtained. Through direct integration of the rate equation for P(n1, n2), the steady state photon probability distribution was established for the case of unequal coupling constant g1 g2.
