Radiative force on atoms from the view of photon emission

Zhuo Song, Yonggang Peng, and Yujun Zheng

In this Letter, we present a possible methodology to directly “read” the force on an atom via the photons emitted from the atom. In this methodology, the mean radiative force on an atom exerted by external fields can be expressed as a function of the average number of emitted photons 〈N〉 and its derivatives via the generating function approach developed by us recently.
