Boussiakou, L.G., Bennett, C.R. and Babiker, M. (2002) Quantum Theory of Spontaneous Emission by Real Moving Atoms. Physical Review Letters, 89 (12). pp. 123001-1. ISSN 1079-7114
We outline the solution of a fundamental problem in quantum theory which has hitherto lacked a proper solution, namely, finding the requisite quantum theoretical framework guaranteeing that the calculated inverse spontaneous emission rate of a moving atom, as a composite system of charged particles interacting with the Maxwell field, is slowed down exactly as in time dilation.
