Abstract

Thermally induced bistability in a Tm, Ho:YAG microlaser has been observed. Theoretical results obtained from a simple plane-wave model are found to describe adequately the experimental transmission and reflection bistability data. The effect of pump interference on the single-mode operation of the laser is discussed.
