Abstract

By using a new technique an exact differential equation of fourth order for the atomic population inversion is derived in the case of single-atom spontaneous emission in a detuned cavity. The numerical solutions for the detuned and tuned cavities are compared. The radiation rate decreases significantly if the detuning is large compared with the cavity damping.
