Paper Abstract

General properties of super-radiance--cooperative spontaneous emission of multi-atomic systems are explained on the basis of some simple models. First we consider spontaneous emission of two atoms separated from each other by a distance less than the wavelength. Then the kinetics of super-radiance of N-atomic system in a small volume are described. The main attention we put into super-radiance photon statistics. We show the Poissonian statistics for the main part of super-radiance pulse and demonstrate the special conditions when it can be Sub-Poissonian one.
