Quantum optics: quantum theories of spontaneous emission

The aim of this text is to check spontaneous emission from numerous diverse viewpoints, even though a wide a part of it is going to be dedicated to the quantum statistical theories of spontaneous emission which were constructed lately, and to discussing the interrelations between diversified techniques.

17) arises from the presence of Z2 electrons per nucleus. The approximate value of Z, ,ff is obtained by assuming that the fragment will lose all the electrons whose orbital velocity in the atom is smaller than the velocity of the fragment itself. The two causes of energy loss considered above may be comparable, but the energy loss due to nuclear collisions is concentrated in few events, whereas the electronic collisions are much more uniformly distributed along the range. The nuclear collisions give rise to the peculiar branches observable in cloud-chamber pictures of fission fragments.

Energy) in crossing the target, a may depend on x. In such cases we cannot speak of an absorption coefficient. We may also make finer distinctions in the cross section. For instance, we may consider whether the collision is elastic or inelastic, designating the corresponding cross sections ael and ainel. ) system. m. system without change of energy and spin orientation; the collision is then elastic. If the proton produces a transmutation or leaves the aluminum in an excited state, the collision is inelastic.

A striking difference in the absorption of the three types of radiation is that only heavy charged particles have a range. That is, a monoenergetic beam of heavy charged particles, in traversing a certain amount of matter, will lose energy without changing the number of particles in the beam. Ultimately they will all be stopped after having crossed practically the same thickness of absorber. 84 cm of air at STP (15°C and 760 mm Hg). For electromagnetic radiation, on the other hand, the absorption is exponential.
