Abstract

The effect of intracavity wavelength selectors on the position of tunable laser modes has been evaluated in the case of short light pulses propagating into the resonator. The narrow-peak approximation is analyzed for the calculus of extra phase introduced by an intracavity selector. A method also has been derived for the calculation of extra phase for a general-shape pulse f(y). In particular, the latter method is applied for a Gaussian-shape pulse.
