Frequency shift and cavity length in photorefractive resonators

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

Photorefractive resonators exhibit an extremely small frequency difference (Δω/ω ~ 10−15) between the oscillating and pumping beams. The observed frequency difference is proportional to cavity-length detuning. This dependence is explained by a photorefractive phase shift that is due to slightly nondegenerate two-wave mixing that compensates for cavity detuning and satisfies the round-trip phase condition for steady-state oscillation. The measured onset or threshold of oscillation as a function of photorefractive gain and intensity agrees with theory.
