Abstract

In this paper a semi-classical model of the nonlinear operation of a laser is extended to describe a laser with a Gaussian mirror. Modified nonlinear self-consistent equations including transverse and longitudinal field dependence, gain saturation, spatial hole burning and nonlinear dispersion effects are derived. With the help of an energy theorem an approximate solution for steady-state single mode operation is presented, which relates the small signal gain to the output power and the laser system characteristic parameters. The laser output power characteristics are presented for various cavity configurations, especially, revealing an influence of the Gaussian mirror parameter on the power efficiency of the laser.
