Quantum Theory of Spontaneous Emission by Real Moving Atoms

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.
