On the feasibility of a nuclear exciton laser — •Nicolai ten Brinke and Ralf Schützhold — Fakultät für Physik, Universität Duisburg-Essen, Lotharstraße 1, D-47057 Duisburg, Germany
Nuclear excitons known from Mössbauer spectroscopy describe coherent excitations of a large number of nuclei – analogous to Dicke states (or Dicke super-radiance) in quantum optics. In this talk, we discuss the possibility of constructing a laser based on these coherent excitations. In contrast to the free electron laser (in its usual design), such a device would be based on stimulated emission and thus might offer certain advantages, e.g., regarding energy-momentum accuracy.
