Abstract

The influences of intracavity nonlinear losses on the intensity noise of output lasers are theoretically and experimentally investigated with an all-solid-state single-frequency laser with high gain. By means of tuning the temperature of a nonlinear crystal deliberately placed inside the laser resonator, the intracavity nonlinear loss of the laser is controlled. The dependence of the frequency and amplitude of the resonant relaxation oscillation peak on the nonlinear loss is studied in detail for both fundamental-wave (FW) and second-harmonic-wave (SHW). We find that, by controlling the temperature of the nonlinear crystal, the intensity noises of the laser can be transferred between FW and SHW. The theoretical predictions are in good agreement with the experimental measurements. The obtained results can be applied to manipulate and suppress the laser noises.
