Abstract

A numerical study is presented of several lowest in frequency modes in a spiral microlaser. The modes in an arbitrarily shaped active cavity are considered as solutions to the two-dimensional eigenproblem for the Muller boundary-integral equations. After discretization using the Nyström-type algorithm, the eigenvalues are found in terms of frequency and material-gain threshold.
