Abstract

The formation of a periodic transverse structure in the light field in a resonator consisting of mirrors and a thin layer of a nonlinear medium is considered. It is shown that, when the resonator length is a multiple of one half of the Talbot length, there exist periodic structures that are self-imaged under propagation through both the empty part of the resonator and the nonlinear medium. The influence of aperture losses is estimated. It is suggested that this type of a resonator may be useful for diode-array-pumped solid-state lasers.
