Abstract

We report on the numerical observation of short-duration low-frequency pulsations in class-B solid-state lasers subject to delayed feedback. The period of these pulsations is much larger than either the delay induced by the feedback or the relaxation oscillation period of the laser without feedback. A link is established between the low-frequency pulsations and the low-frequency fluctuations observed in semiconductor lasers subject to coherent optical feedback.
