Paper Abstract

Il is shown numerically that in Talbot cavity being formed by a thin nonlinear amplifying layer and a pair of a flat imperfect mirrors the small phase distortions put a fundamental limitation on the size of aperture with in-phase lasing. This effect results in spreading of the far field distribution and it is not suppressed by plane wave injection.
