Propagation and amplification of incoherent pulses in dispersive and nonlinear media

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

We develop a statistical model to study all the relevant phenomena that can give rise to an anomalous intensity saturation in the propagation of incoherent pulses in a laser amplifier. The interplay among diffraction, self-focusing, group-velocity dispersion, gain narrowing, and gain saturation is investigated. Changes in the temporal and spatial characteristics of the pulses are shown.
