Revolution in physics: scientists have identified a form of generalised superradiation

In a way, superradiance is the ne plus ultra of radiation. Its powerful light is critical for many experiments in a broad range of scientific fields, but it has also been notoriously difficult to generate. Now, with the help of “Piz Daint” at CSCS in Switzerland and PRACE resources, a group of scientists has expanded the concept of superradiance and found a way to more easily generate the valuable radiation. They are calling the novel concept “generalised superradiance”.
