Abstract

We model the behavior of short and ultrashort laser pulses in high-finesse Fabry-Perot resonators, examining, in particular, the influence of cavity mirror reflectance and dispersion. The total coupling, peak power enhancement and temporal broadening of circulating pulses are characterized a function of the duration of the incident pulses. We show that there is an optimal input pulse duration which maximizes peak power for a given set of mirror characteristics. (C) 2003 Optical Society of America.
