Taking into account induced radiation, demonstrate that the absorption coefficient of the gas varies as x (T) =- x 0 (1 - e-li U) / IiT), where %0 is the absorption coefficient at T == 0 I\.. 5.45. Under what conditions can light passing through matter be amplified ? Find the ratio of the populations of levels ID 2 and Ip}.(ED> E p ) in atoms of gas at which a beam of monochromatic light with a frequency equal to the frequency of transition between these levels passes through the gas without attenuation. 5.46. Suppose that a quantum system (Fig. 20) is excited to level 2 and the reverse transition occurs only via level 1. Demonstrate that in this case light with frequency 0)21 can be amplified, if the condition g1A10> g2A21 is satisfied, where gl and g 2 are the statistical weights of levels 1 and 2 and A l o and A 21 are the Einstein coeffi- cients for the corresponding transitions. 5.47.

A spectral line 'A == 5320 A appears due to transition in an a torn between t\VO excited states whose mean lifetimes are 1.2· -10-s and 2.0."10-8 s. Evaluate the natural width of that line, ~'A. 47 5.49. The distribution of radiation intensity within a spectral line with natural broadening takes the form (1'/2)2 J (I) -.-.=:: J 0 ( )2 -1 ( /2)"> •(U-(r)o - Y - where J 0 is the spectral intensity at the line's centre (at ro === (Oo); l' is the constant which is characteristic for every line (e.g. when an excited state relaxes directly down to the ground state, l' === 1/1', T being the mean lifetime of the excited state). Using this formula, find: (a) the naturallinewidth <Sw, if the value of l' is known; (b) the mean lifetime of mercury atoms in the 61P state, if the transition to the ground state is known to result in emission of a line A ~ 1850 A with natural width <SA ~ 1.5.10-4 1\.

Making use of the formula of the foregoing problem: (a) dem- onstrate that half the total intensity of a line is confined within its Iinewid th , that is, within the width of line's contour at the half of its height; (b) find the total intensity of a line whose natural width is ou) and spectral intensity at the centre J o. 5.51. The distribution of radiation intensity in a spectral line with Doppler's broadening takes the form: J w == Joe- a (W-Wo)2/ (,)g; a === m.c2/2kT, where J 0 is the spectral intensity at the line's centre (at (D ~ (Do); m ·is the mass of the atom; T is the temperature of gas, K.

At what temperature is the Doppler broadening of each component of the spectral doublet 22P - 128 of atomic hydrogen equal to the interval between these components? 5.54. To obtain spectral lines without Doppler's broadening, a narrow slightly divergent beam of excited atoms is used, the obser- vation heing performed at right angles to the beam.
