Abstract

We discuss the coherent behavior of a polarized, nuclear or electron, spin system for which the magnetic dipole radiation emitted in the radio-frequency region, has approximately quadratic dependence on the number of spins. An effective method of describing these phenomena is provided by computer simulation of a microscopic model of the spin system. Important aspects of this numeric simulation are described, together with a comparison with the theoretical predictions. The behavior of the transverse component of the magnetic moment, M+ (t), in super-radiant conditions is studied. In addition, the role of dipole-dipole interactions in super-radiation phenomena is investigated in detail. It is shown that some important features of super-radiation cannot be described with the Bloch equations.
