Paper Abstract

The analysis of the free generation dynamics of solid-state lasers with an intracavity Kerr nonlinear element is presented. Nonlinear diffraction losses, which result from self-focusing and defocusing of intracavity radiation, have been determined. The stability of stationary operation has been investigated. It is shown, that in the case of the fast defocusing nonlinearity index the resulting instability can also produce undamped spikes of intensity as in the case of focusing nonlinearity. Main peculiarities of operation regimes are determined.
