Abstract

Atoms separated by distances comparable to or less than the wavelength of a photon for a dipole allowed transition can manifest collective effects. These effects can be apparent in the radiative lifetime of an excited state, how the atoms recoil when a photon is emitted, the transmission/reflectivity of an atomic cloud, etc. This talk will describe some of these processes and the theoretical machinery used to model them.
