Abstract

A self-consistent model of a self-organizing external cavity high power laser is presented. The model consists of a photorefractive crystal model, which relies on the plane wave approximation, and of a spectral model of the tapered laser amplifier. The results show that the laser can operate in a single longitudinal mode.
