Near-threshold behaviour of multimode continuous-wave dye lasers with amplitude-modulated pump

Stephen H. Chakmakjian, Stephanos Papademetriou, Karl Koch, and C. R. Stroud, Jr.

Phys. Rev. A 40, 1858 (1989).


The authors use amplitude-modulation techniques to investigate the response of a multimode dye laser when its pump intensity is sinusoidally amplitude modulated. A theoretical model is presented based on a Floquet analysis to obtain the stationary-state first-harmonic response of the population inversion and that of the laser intensity as a function of modulation frequency. They perform experiments in multimode continuous-wave dye lasers to demonstrate the validity of this theory in describing the behaviour of multimode lasers operating near the lasing threshold.
