Paper Abstract

On the basis of Jones' vectors and matrices formalism the theoretical study is made of the energy and polarization characteristics of a two-frequency (single-mode) standing-wave Helium-Neon laser with weakly anisotropic cavity possessing linear phase anisotropy. The possibility is shown of the existence of polarization instability of lasers operating at j yields j + 1 transitions. Polarization multistability has been found. The results of the theory are in agreement with the known experimental data.
