Paper Abstract

We discuss the physical mechanisms involved in kinematic mode locking. The issues of what determines a velocity range for the motion of a cavity mirror in order to get the laser mode locked and why a slight cavity-length mismatch is always required for coupled-cavity systems are addressed.
