Paper Abstract

Orthogonally polarized modes have been operated in a Nd:YAG laser with weakly anisotropic cavity. Different intensity dependences of the orthogonal modes on the orientation of the pump polarization plane are discovered. The power spectrum of each polarization mode reveals three relaxation peaks in a good agreement with predictions of the laser model modified to include polarization effects.
