Paper Abstract

A Matrix formalism is proposed to treat the propagation of ultrashort light pulses in laser resonators. The existence of "Gaussian temporal eigenmodes" for laser resonators is discussed, with emphasis on the dependence of the time duration of such eigenpulses on various parameters of the resonator. Results of computer simulations based on the formalism are presented.
