Conference paper

Abstract

There are contrasts and similarities between swept-gain superradiance1 and Dicke superradiance2, and these have been discussed3,4. The main characteristics of the pulses radiated under conditions supportive of Dicke superradiance are quite similar to those predicted1 and observed5 for swept-Cain superradiance. The main distinction lies in the propagation analysis. Comparison of the conditions for observation of these two distinct phenomena was presented and discussed earlier4, for uniform, plane wave analysis.
