Paper Abstract

A large signal model of three-level superfluorescent sources (SFS''s) is presented. It is found that due to the ground state signal absorption present in three-level systems theoretical backward signal quantum efficiencies well in excess of the limit of 0. 5 exhibited by four-level systems can be achieved. Feedback is also studied and it is shown that when used in high feedback applications SFS ''s may require the use of an optical isolator.
