Distribution- and correlation-functions for a laser amplitude

  • H. Risken


In this paper a contribution to the nonlinear theory of laser noise is given. The lasing field is treated as a classical random variable, the noise is introduced by the concept of fluctuating dipoles. In order to obtain correlation functions the method of distribution functions is employed. The distribution functions are calculated by the Fokker-Planck equation.
