Abstract

We study, both experimentally and theoretically, the threshold properties of the polarized modes in Nd3+-doped fiber lasers. We demonstrate the influence of the gain anisotropy induced by the pump polarization and of the loss anisotropy induced by the cavity mirror tilt. An understanding of these two phenomena reveals the microscopic anisotropics of the ion for both the pump and laser transitions.
