Theory of energy evolution in laser resonators with saturated gain and non-saturated loss

Abstract

Theory of the energy evolution in laser resonators with saturated gain and non-saturated loss is revisited. An explicit analytical expression for the output energy/average power in terms of the gain saturation energy, cavity loss and small signal gain parameters is derived for a ring cavity configuration.
