Abstract:

The nonlinear characteristics of a gas laser amplifier operating with two optical frequency signals of arbitrary polarization and having an axial magnetic field is analyzed, using semiclassical radiation theory and a density matrix formalism. Both perturbational solutions, valid for relatively weak intensities and solutions valid for arbitrarily strong fields are obtained for two nonlinear effects the saturation interaction of the electromagnetic waves, and the generation of combination tones. An arbitrary amount of Doppler broadening is considered throughout. Author
