Abstract

Two mutually incoherent beams from a multilongitudinal-mode Ar+ laser have been used as simultaneous inputs to a self-pumped barium titanate crystal. With one beam positioned for self-pumping and the other for self-pulsing, the overall output behavior is seen to have two stable states that depend on the previous history of single-beam self-pumping or self-pulsing. During one of these output states, a spontaneously generated continuous loop of light is seen in the crystal, providing a coupling mechanism between the two mutually incoherent beams.
