Paper Abstract

Transverse effects in nonlinear optical devices are being widely investigated. Recently, synchronization of a laser set by means of the Talbot effect has been demonstrated experimentally. This paper considers a Talbot cavity formed by a solid-state amplifying laser separated from the output mirror by a free space interval. This approach involves the approximation of the nonlinear medium as a thin layer, within which the diffraction is negligible. The other part of a resonator is empty, and the wave field is transformed by the Fresnel-Kirchoff integral. As a result, the dynamics of the transverse (and temporal) structure is computed by a successively iterated nonlinear local map (one- or two-dimensional) and a linear nonlocal map (generally speaking, infinitely dimensional).
