Reflectivity and oscillation conditions of a gain medium in a self-conjugating loop geometry

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

The intensity-dependent reflectivity of a gain medium in a self-phase-conjugating loop geometry is numerically modeled by use of exact integration equations without restriction on the degree of gain saturation. High conjugate reflectivity and high energy extraction efficiency of the gain medium are predicted. A weak saturation analysis is also presented to derive useful expressions for the threshold input intensity for oscillation of the backward conjugate mode and the resonant oscillation frequencies.
