Abstract

An overview is given of a theoretical description of radiation trapping in collimated atomic beams. It is shown how the effective lifetime of an ensemble of atoms relates to the natural decay rate Γnat. The theory considers ideally collimated beams and neglects any deviation of the particle velocity vectors from the beam axis.
