Paper Abstract

In this paper, the general ring cavity model of passive and active optical systems is presented. In the mean field and the Gaussian one transverse mode approximations, the steady state and stability properties of the systems are analyzed for mixed absorptive and dispersive cases. It is found that when the transmissivity ratio M (equals T1/T2) varies, the bistable loop changes its size and even the systematic behavior varies from the bistability mode into the amplification mode, and the instability domain on the steady state curve varies obviously. The mode-pulling formula and bistable threshold with varying values of M are also discussed.
