Pattern formation in lasers with Fabry-Perot cavities and hard-edge diffraction
We show that the presence of cylindric metallic objects, such as waveguides and apertures, inside lasers with Fabry-Perot cavities modifies considerably the symmetry of these systems. This, in turn, changes the structure of the patterns that can be observed and could lead to the use of patterns as a way of studying properties of the scattering objects.

Abstract

We show that the presence of cylindric metallic objects, such as waveguides and apertures, inside lasers with Fabry-Perot cavities modifies considerably the symmetry of these systems. This, in turn, changes the structure of the patterns that can be observed and could lead to the use of patterns as a way of studying properties of the scattering objects.
