Eigenmodes of Next-Generation Unstable Cavity Lasers: Kaleidoscopes, Snowflakes, Pentaflakes, and Fractal Dimension

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


We will report on our latest research into fractal lasers (linear systems which involve geometrically-unstable resonators with inherent magnification) [1], introducing two new classes of transverse cavity configuration. These devices are of fundamental interest as table-top generators of tunable fractal light that can be used in a wide range of applications – from optical probes (e.g., increased sensitivity in surface roughness measurements) to secure information encoding/transmission to medical imaging. Moreover, we expect them to play a pivotal role in new Nature-inspired optical architectures and devices (e.g., writing fractal structures into new materials).
