Abstract

Generalized optical Bloch equations are derived and applied to free-induction decay. The resultant expression for the free decay rate is shown to give a reasonably good fit to recent experimental data of DeVoe and Brewer that cannot be explained by the usual Bloch equations with the conventional 1/T1 and 1/T2 relaxation parameters.
