The effect of resonance reabsorption of fluorescent radiation on the spectral distribution has been considered as early as 1913 by Laudenburg and Reivhe [1]. Schein [2] and Zemansky [3] recognized that the reabsorption causes a broadening of the light emitted by resonance lamps. In this note we report an experimental and theoretical study of the complementary effect, i.e., of resonance radiation originating in a system in which the population of the upper level of the resonance transition is made to exceed that of the lower one (inverted population system).
