Abstract

An optically injected Fabry-Perot cavity containing uniform saturable gain is analyzed. Familiar cubic curves of laser intensity vs injected intensity are obtained for single-ended lasers. The curves for the intensity returning to the injected end of double-ended lasers can have loops, cusps, and undulations if the mirror reflectivities and small-signal gain are properly chosen. The undulations can also occur in double-ended regenerative amplifiers.
