Axial modes in a grating-dispersed laser cavity

  • A. E. Siegman
Contributed Papers


Two recent papers by Stankov and the author have predicted that unusual axial mode properties should occur in a laser cavity containing an intracavity dispersive grating pair. The analysis in these reports is unfortunately incorrect, and the corrected properties of the dispersive cavity are found to be less interesting than at first predicted.
