Abstract : Previous work on the effects of slow spatial cross relaxation is extended in two directions. First, off-axis models are included in the calculations, and it becomes possible to calculate the number of oscillating off-axis modes as a function of the various laser parameters. The expected beam angle of a laser can be predicted. Second, a more detailed analysis of the spiking behavior is given. Both regular and irregular spiking trains may be obtained, depending upon the laser parameters and pump power. (Author)
