Abstract

A model is reported that describes a bidirectional homogeneously broadened index-antiguided (IAG) slab laser having arbitrary single-pass gain and distributed losses. Maximum extraction efficiency and corresponding optimum output coupling are determined for various values of unsaturated gain and loss per pass. A method is proposed to determine the intrinsic laser parameters from output power measurements.
