Superradiance: Quantum effect detected in tiny diamonds

The effect has been predicted theoretically decades ago — but it is very hard to provide experimental evidence for it: “Superradiance” is the phenomenon of one atom giving off energy in the form of light and causing a large number of other atoms in its immediate vicinity to emit energy as well at the same time. This creates a short, intense flash of light. Continue reading “Superradiance: Quantum effect detected in tiny diamonds”
