The semiclassical theory of laser describes the regime where, due to a large number of photons in the laser cavity, one may treat the electrical field classically, but the two level atoms are treated quantum mechanically [20, 9].

Results and Discussion. In following 16 illustrations (Tables) are given the results of calculations of atom number within amino acid side chains; the calculations, related to the amino acid system built either from only 16 noncontact or from all 20 AAs (16 non-contact plus 4 contact AAs).

We could better understand the sizes of the condensates we produce (recall how in section 5.4 the 20% error on χm translates into nearly a factor of two uncertainty in the number of condensate atoms lost during the lifetime of the condensate).

Here, Nat ≈ 20 is the effective number of C atoms in the local region, ν0 = 10 ps−1 is the vibrational frequency, used also in Ep , and E ∗ ± (i) are activation barriers of the i + 1-th and i − 1-th defects for structures with i defects.
