Frequencies of the axial modes of a composite cavity


The cavity consists of a rod with plane-parallel plates as mirrors. The frequencies differ in loss, which leads to mode selection. There is a periodicity in the frequencies if the various elements are comparable in length. The periodν 0 usually substantially exceeds the distance between natural frequencies for the rod. There may be one or two stable frequencies with minimal loss within a period, the decisive factor being the relation between the optical lengths of the components.
