Abstract

Analysis of an optical ring resonator consisting of a prism and two mirrors demonstrates that such a resonator can have adjustable dispersion of either sign. The dispersion is proportional to the second derivative of the optical path length in the resonator with respect to wavelength. Adjustable dispersion may have important application to the production of ultrashort laser pulses.
