Cold atom superradiance

John Martin (Université de Liège, Belgique)

In my talk, I will report on the derivation and resolution of a novel master equation governing the cooperative spontaneous emission from an ensemble of cold atoms [1]. Our master equation for the atomic internal degrees of freedom incorporates the effects of the quantization of the atomic center-of-mass motion. It provides a unifying picture of the consequences of recoil and indistinguishability of atoms beyond the Lamb-Dicke regime, both on their dissipative and conservative internal dynamics. I will discuss general expressions for the decay rates and dipole-dipole shifts entering our master equation. As an application of our formalism, I will then investigate the consequences of indistinguishability of cold atoms on two hallmarks of cooperative emission processes: Dicke super- and subradiance [2].
