Abstract

The effects of light absorption and amplification on the transition rates of the electric-dipole emission of atoms or molecules embedded in micrometer-sized dielectric spheres are investigated in the framework of classical electrodynamics. The expression for the form factor of a resonant emission line is derived. Its dependence on the imaginary part of the light’s refractive index is investigated. It is discovered that the active sphere does not act as an optical resonator if light amplification is strong.
