Role of Spontaneous and Stimulated Emission in Photon Correlations
Recently there have been a number of articles[1–7] dwelling in considerable detail on the origin of photon statistics of light. Photon correlations have been alternately attributed to either spontaneous or stimulated emission by various authors. In this paper we interpret, on the basis of available experimental data on the subject, their separate contributions to the evolution of photon statistics
