2020 Physical Review A  
The resonant interaction between x-ray photons and nuclei is one of the most exciting subjects of the burgeoning field of x-ray quantum optics. A resourceful platform used so far are thin-film x-ray cavities with embedded layers or M\"ossbauer nuclei such as $^{57}\mathrm{Fe}$. A new quantum optical model based on the classical electromagnetic Green's function is developed to investigate theoretically the nuclear response inside the x-ray cavity. The model is versatile and provides an intuitive
