Paper Abstract

A new, broadly applicable technique for obtaining optical rate equations is derived for laser cavities having a variety of possible exterior couplings, including field injection and feedback. The method, based on analytical continuation of the roundtrip condition, retains essential resonator physics over the whole spectral range and all magnitudes of coupling, in contrast to existing rate equations. Injection locking, external feedback, and phase conjugative interaction are discussed as applications.
