Spontaneous Raman processes in cold atoms have been widely used in the past decade for generating single photons. Here, we present a method to optimise their efficiencies for given atomic coherences and optical depths. We give a simple and complete recipe that can be used in present-day experiments, attaining near-optimal single photon emission.
