Paper Abstract

The mode behavior in a resonator with distributed anisotropic element is analyzed. It is noticed that taking into consideration of influence of the wave polarization parameters (azimuth and ellipticity) on the amplitude-frequency ones and vice versa is very important in anisotropic laser (or resonator systems, especially at internal modulation of their anisotropy. It is shown that the modulation of the anisotropy directions in the optical resonator without gain medium can lead to considerable change of the mode behavior giving as a result the phenomenon of parametric resonance. The parametric resonance condition means sudden change of the resonator mode characteristics because of decrease of Q-factor and possible `quenching' of the part of eigenmode spectral components.
