Paper Abstract

Bare cavity eigenmode analysis is used in this paper to evaluate the diffractive interaction of the forward and reverse modes of an unstable ring laser. The particular case analyzed here is an HF chemical laser, which has a multiline inhomogeneously broadened gain medium. The simplified model presented here provides extremely good agreement with experimental data and gives increased understanding of reverse mode suppression in multiline chemical lasers with unstable ring resonant cavities.
