Abstract

Stable spatial laser patterns were observed in a high-finesse Fabry–Perot cavity containing up to 2 atm of CO2 and O2. The gases displayed the same sequence of patterns that obey a scaling law of the form Pβp2, where P is the power stored in the cavity, p is the pressure of the gas, and β is a material-dependent parameter.
