Abstract

A detailed and realistic theory of the fast dynamics and stability of flared laser oscillators and master oscillator-power amplifier (MOPA) is described. The theory approximates a realistic gain spectrum into a complex Lorentzian susceptibility which depends non-linearly on carrier density and includes saturation effects. As an illustration, the model is used to simulate the dynamics of flared oscillators with high spatial and temporal resolution.
