—For a usual occurrence of wave scattering, the amplitude of the reflected wave is less than that of the incident wave because the incident wave loses energy to the reflective obstacle. However, for the so-called superradiance phenomenon, the amplitude of the reflected wave is more than that of the incident wave since the incident wave extracts energy from the reflective obstacle. In this paper, a simple toy model of superradiance is presented. The results show that for the case of superradiance, we derive a conservation of flux instead of the conservation of probability.
