This expression for Q has an intuitive physical interpretation when written in the
form: Q = -I — I x (Geometrical factor) (8.92)* where Kis the volume of the cavity,
and S its total surface area. The Q of a cavity is evidently, apart from a
The presence of the factor (A:o)21 in the transition probability (16.104) means
that in the long- wavelength limit (ka < 1) the transition rate falls off rapidly with
increasing multipole order, for a fixed frequency. Consequently in an atomic or ...
We see that near the resonant frequency w0 the absorption cross section has the
same Lorentz shape as the scattering cross section, but is larger by a factor F(/F.
At high frequencies F, -»• w2r, so that the absorption cross section approaches ...
