Quantum optics: quantum theories of spontaneous emission

The aim of this text is to study spontaneous emission from numerous various 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 varied methods.

35 scattering, the second term as internat (or resonance) scattering. This distinction is further c1arified by noticing that if the nuc1eus were replaced by a perlectty impenetrable sphere 01 radius R, the condition that the wave function had to fulfill at the nuc1ear surface would be Ul (R) = 0, which implies, according to (21. 3), Il--+ 00. 7) where the potential scattering arises from the small penetrability of the nuc1eus for the incident neutrons and is usually described in terms of an impenetrable sphere, while the internal or resonance scattering depends on the internal structure of the nuc1eus.

20) below] of the Cd absorber used (for a collimated beam): group C covers the thermal region in which the velocity distribution is roughly Maxwellian but it differs from it, because of the capture of neutrons in the moderator, and because of the continuous supply of other neutrons slowed down from higher energies. 4ev where the energy spectrum tends to decrease as 1/E (see Sect. 107). The problem of determining the energies corresponding to the characteristic absorption lines and the widths of the latter, was also attacked and roughly solved by making use of a technique based on the diffusion properties of neutrons in paraffin 1 ,4.

25) it may change sign. 7) reduces to Us = 4n A~sin2 k R ~ 4nR2. 13). 21 ) 2 ;:). In agreement with our previous considerations the reaction cross section depends only on the imaginary part of the scattering length. 21. The distinction between potential scattering and resonance scattering. In this section we shall summarize a procedure of transformation of the scattering cross section of neutrons of angular momentum I, Eq. 11), which allow a c1ear distinction between potential scattering and resonance scattering (Sect.
