The Influence of Wide-Band Frequency Modulation on the Competition of Orthogonally Polarized Modes in a Two-Mode Laser

  • V. I. VoronovEmail author


Competitive interaction of orthogonally polarized modes in a two-mode laser operating in a regime of wide-band frequency modulation has been numerically simulated. This modulation was implemented by means of the corresponding variation of the laser cavity length. Parameters of the active medium adopted in the numerical model were characteristic of He–Ne lasers with an inhomogeneously broadened gain line. It is established that negative consequences of the mode competition can be significantly reduced at certain values of the modulation frequency and frequency deviation.
