Paper Abstract

In three-level systems one can realize amplification of radiation without inversion by creating a coherent superposition of lower states. This concept applied to the superradiant emission may allow us to get inversionless superfluorescence. Such a possibility is demonstrated for (Lambda) -scheme of the operating transitions. We discuss the problem how to create the coherence of lower states and the effect of the lower level splitting on superfluorescence.
