Similarly, one can show all the other cyclic commutation relationships.
63. No. All three components of the angular momentum operators can be specified precisely at the
same time if the expectation values of all the commutators of the angular momentum operators
are precisely zero in a particular state. This is the case when the hydrogen atom is in the ground
state, or the slevel (
l=0).

(b) To compare the result obtained in Part a above with the classical result based on a
damped harmonic oscillator model instead of the twolevel atom model: Suppose
the equation of motion of the harmonic oscillator is of the form:
d

)
which describes the oscillating motion of a particle of mass m and negative charge
of the magnitude f

e bound to a fixed point in space similar to the oscillator
shown in Figure 5.1. The spring constant of the harmonic oscillator is equal to
mω
21
2
; the damping constant is Γ ; and the deviation of the particle from its
equilibrium position in the absence of any electric field E
z
is z(t).
For the classical result, assumeω

so that
ω

≅ 2ω

which is the same as the result obtained in (a) above on the basis of the quantum
mechanic densitymatrix equation.
(c) Since the complex dielectric constant based on the oscillator strength f using
either the quantum mechanical model or the classical harmonic oscillator model
gives the same result for ε” , it is obvious that the same should be true for ε’.
The classical harmonic oscillator model, therefore, can be used to characterize
the dispersion and absorption characteristics of linear optical media with only
three phenomenological parameters: the oscillator strength f, that characterizes
the strength of the charge e
2
, the resonance frequency ω
21
, and the damping
constant Γ associated with the bound particle in the harmonic oscillator model.

The turnon dynamics of such a laser can be calculated numerically on the basis of these
normalized laser rate equations using, for example, the Mathematica program:
NDSolve[{y'[x] == 20 y[x] Abs[z[x]]  10 y[x] + 30,
z'[x] == 2000 z[x] + 2000 y[x] z[x] + 0.001, y[0] == 0,
z[0] == 0}, {y, z}, {x, 0, 2}]
g = 0/0
Plot[Evaluate[ y[x] /. g],{x, 0, 0.5},PlotRange> {0, 2},
AxesOrigin>{0, 0},
AxesLabel>{"t", "n(t)/n(s.s)"}]
Plot[Evaluate[ z[x] /. g], {x, 0, 0.5}, PlotRange>{0, 10},
AxesLabel>{"t", "N(t)/N(s.s.)"}]
The resulting calculated dynamics for the normalized population inversion and
intracavity intensity are shown in the figures ( t in 10
7
sec) below. These results show a
pattern of laser relaxation oscillations with the frequency in the range of a few tenths of a
Ghz and a damping time on the order of tens of nsec, numbers characteristic of a
semiconductor laser.
