Abstract

We report experimental observations of the mode dynamics in a weakly multimode photorefractive ring oscillator with induced astigmatism. First a gallery of transverse, higher-order Gaussian modes in the system is presented. Subsequently the dynamics of beating modes and the interactions between modes belonging to different bases are examined. The latter show the transition of modes between the three equivalent mode families experimentally. Finally regions of cavity symmetry leading to different spatial modes and mode dynamics are identified.
