Experimental measurements and calculations revealed an unusual type of oscillation dynamics of Sn2P2S6 in the semi-linear cavity. It consists of a pronounced saw-tooth modulation of oscillation intensity—although it is not 100% in contrast—with the cw component being shifted in frequency with respect to the pump wave. This effect is attributed to the hybrid mode of two semi-linear oscillation geometries, one with a single pump wave and the other with two counterpropagating pump waves.
