Abstract

Spontaneous pulsations similar to the type discovered in 3.51-μm Xe laser oscillators were reported several years ago in 3.39-μm He–Ne lasers, but no numerical interpretation of the He–Ne data has been given. The model for the Xe laser instability is adapted here to the He–Ne system, and the results include direct comparisons between theoretical calculations and published experimental data. Good agreement is obtained for the instability threshold, the pulsation frequencies, and many other features; and unmeasured but potentially useful pulsation characteristics are also readily obtained from the model.
