Paper Abstract

A semiclassical model of the nonlinear operation of the laser with Gaussian mirror (GMR) is presented. Nonlinear self- consistent equations including transverse and longitudinal field dependence, gain saturation, spatial hole burning and nonlinear dispersion effects are derived. With the help of energy theorem an approximate solution for steady state single mode operation is presented, which relate the small signal gain to the output power and the laser system characteristic parameters. Characteristics revealing the effects of system parameters are presented for various cavity configurations.
