Abstract

We have studied the four-wave-mixing oscillation obtained when a cell containing sodium and a buffer gas is enclosed in a ring cavity. The beat frequency Δν between the two counterrotating beams is shown to depend on the intensity difference (I1I2) between the two pump beams. The curve giving Δν as a function of (I1I2) is a gyro-type curve, which suggests some possible application for optical gyros.
