Abstract

We show that the coupled-oscillator model accurately describes the dynamics of laser arrays. Excellent qualitative and quantitative agreement is obtained between this model and the results of experiments on Nd:YAG laser arrays. Recent claims of instantaneous phase locking are shown to be in error.
