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.
