Paper Abstract

A theoretical approach for investigation of amplitude and polarization behavior of a vector class-A laser based on the Hones matrix and vector formalism is considered in details. Exact mathematical expression for a new decay rate-decay rate of the electromagnetic field polarization is derived. It is shown that this constant might be strongly influenced by resonator anisotropy. Amplitude and polarization behavior of the vector laser model taking into consideration the decay rate of the field polarization is investigated for two particular cases of He-Ne slightly anisotropic lasers operating at (lambda) equals 1.15 micrometers and at (lambda) equals 1.207 micrometers .
