Abstract

By means of a simplified model we study the dynamics of transverse effects in the nonlinear Fabry–Perot resonator illuminated under both normal and oblique incidences. We show that oblique incidence leads to a new kind of instability characterized by the onset of periodic self-pulsing. On the basis of a simple linear stability analysis, we interpret this instability in terms of a drift of spatial dissipative structures.
