Paper Abstract

We study numerically a single-mode homogeneously broadened three-level model for a coherently pumped laser in a ring cavity with pump and generated fields having gaussian transverse profiles. For a range of parameters suitable for a NH3 laser, we find dynamics in the phase space provided that the radius of the pump field is small compared with the beam waist of the generated field. Otherwise, we find that the laser emits a constant intensity output.
