Paper Abstract

In the present paper the polarization-transverse patterns in the multimode vector-field laser with no restriction imposed on the transverse mode number are studied numerically using the dynamical model, in which the saturation of the working transition is described analytically. We considered a unidirectional ring cavity with image rotation. The active medium of the laser is assumed to be homogeneously broadened. The Zeeman splitting of the active transition controlled by the axial magnetic field was taken into account. The medium polarization and levels population is assumed to be adiabatically eliminated (class-A laser). The vector-field catastrophes were used for the description of pattern dynamics.
