Near-resonance absorption processes: A model study

C. K. Au, Y. Aharonov

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We construct an exactly soluble model in which an otherwise bound system can make transitions to another channel with a continuous energy spectrum to simulate the decay of an excited atom by the emission of photons. We show that the resonance absorption line shape occurs naturally in such a model.
