Abstract

We present a phenomenological model that describes the self-starting properties of a passively Q-switched fiber laser with a nonlinear mirror. The model predicts a self-pulsing behavior above a critical value of the pumping parameter and is in good agreement with experimental data reported for an Yb-doped fiber laser with a liquefying gallium mirror.
