AbstractInterference of orthogonal modes in a birefringent crystal is known to lead to interesting physical effects (Solli et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 91, 143906 (2003)). In this paper we show that the cavity with an intra-cavity rotator can enhance the mixing to the extent of normal mode splitting and avoided crossing depending on the orientation of the rotator with respect to the optic axis of the crystal. A high finesse cavity is shown to be capable of resolving small angles. The results are based on direct c…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
