    Abstract

    In high optical power laser interferometer gravitational wave detectors, resonant scattering of carrier photons into a higher order optical cavity mode will cause parametric instability. Here we consider higher order transverse modes up to the 7th order, and show that resonant scattering can occur into multiple optical Stokes modes, thereby increasing instability gain.
