Abstract

Reflection properties of resonant optical cavities are examined under steady-state and transient conditions. For suitably selected cavity mirrors, the effective cavity reflectivity exhibits a transient zero-crossing behavior. Several practical applications are described, including an optical ac/dc filter-intracavity laser smoother, a sensitive AM/FM/PM detector, optical pulse shaping, and an interferornetrically modulated laser.
