Some Nonlinear Properties of Pulse Propagation

Conference paper


Nonlinear properties of pulse propagation are considered in relation to frequency pulling and pushing of the average carrier frequency of pulses applied off-resonance from the center of absorbing and emitting lines. The average frequency is analyzed as a function of distance of propagation. Some characteristics of propagating pulses in purely homogeneously broadened absorbers are discussed. By means of optical path delay and phase shift, zero-area pulses from a ruby laser are observed to propagate through many absorption lengths in a resonant inhomogeneously broadened ruby sample with anomalously large power outputs.
