Atomic resonance interaction in dielectric media

Bostrom, Mathias; Ninham, Barry


The retarded resonance interaction in dielectric media between a ground state atom and an excited atom were investigated. The whole system was represented by a superposition of states:symmetric and antisymmetric with respect to interchange of atoms. While the antisymmetric state can be long lived, the asymmetric state is likely to decay into two ground state atoms. The retarded limit large deviations were demonstrated.
