Superradiance in an ultracold thermal vapor

We report on superradiant Rayleigh scattering in an anisotropic, cold thermal vapor. We identify threshold pump powers and atomic densities for entering the superradiant regime, and observe temporal correlations between light emitted in opposite directions. © 2009 Optical Society of America.
