Abstract

A complete model to evaluate frequency conversion that is due to highly nondegenerate four-wave mixing in Fabry–Perot laser oscillators is presented; propagation effects are taken into account. Simplified expressions are obtained in the limit of perfectly reflecting mirrors that permit analytical solutions; they are in good agreement with the results of the numerical analysis. Examples of results exhibit interesting features such as a correction factor for the relaxation frequency peak, good conversion gain up to the terahertz region, and complex behavior of the frequency response near side-mode resonances.
