Paper Abstract

Passive dispersive laser cavity of a new type is suggested and investigated. A distinctive feature of this cavity is the property of rays self-imaging which allows us to ensure spatial separation of the radiation with different wavelengths inside the cavity and creates positive feedback for all the mentioned wavelengths simultaneously. The cavity possesses a number of advantages compared to the resonators with points self-imaging previously developed by the authors and used in polychromatic lasers. A new cavity application allows us to use a wider set of active media in such lasers, simplifies their construction, decreases the demands to the quality of the intracavity elements.
