Unformatted text preview: Emission Spectrum In the emission of light by atoms, homogeneous broadening is produced by atoms having a finite lifetime of emission 7‘. The emission from the excited state corresponds to a damped oscillator. Thus the complex electric field may be represented by E(t) = E0 emp(—t/'r) emp(+jwot) for t > 0, E(t) =0 for t< 0. The instantaneous field is given by the real part of the complex field. The emission spec- tral density for this type of emitter has a Lorentzian lineshape for frequencies near the optical radian frequency we. a) Calculate, showing all work, the Fourier transform of Put your final answer in rationalized form in the space provided. b) Calculate, showing all work, the emission spectral density (the square of the magni- tude of the Fourier transform). 1300) = [Em-ca)? = Emission Spectrum E(t) 2 E0 exp(—-t/7') exp(+jw0t) for t > O, E(t) =0 for t<0.
