Abstract

A model of a superradiant laser comprising of N three-level systems driven by two pumping lasers is considered in semiclassical approximation. Steady-state equations for density matrix elements are solved both analytically and numerically. Various properties of generated light are investigated. It is found that such a laser can exhibit both superradiance, when the intensity scales as N 2 , and subradiance when the intensity does not depend on N. The phase of the laser field is locked to the relative phase of the pumping lasers.
