Paper Abstract

The theory of semiconductor ring laser is developed. It is found that both carrier diffusion and linewidth enhancement factor, which are specific for semiconductors, influence highly the laser behavior. In particular, the stable bidirectional lasing with comparable counterrunning wave intensities appears. The effect of cavity phase nonreciprocity (rotation) on the laser behavior is investigated. It is shown that information about phase nonreciprocity value is contained both in the relaxation oscillation spectra of unidirectional lasing and in the difference of counterrunning wave frequencies in bidirectional regime. This feature gives a possibility to use such laser as a compact gyroscope.
