Abstract

A new theoretical approach for the study of the influence of diffraction on Ikeda instability in the Kerr-type nonlinear ring cavity is proposed. The simplicity of this model allows for a complete analytical study of transverse modulational instability in the period-2 regime of the cavity. In particular the emergence of stationary spatial dissipative structures in the profile of the period-doubled transmitted beam is predicted.
