Abstract

A model presented which views the system as a coupled-cavity problem, and self-consistently calculates the longitudinal modes of the cavity and the optical susceptibility. The optical susceptibility is calculated over the full frequency range of expected optical cavity modes and includes many-body effects. in this way the evolution of the mode spectrum from spontaneous emission can be obtained. The model is applied to a specific topical phenomenon - the observation of low frequency fluctuations (LFF), and the results are compared with those of single mode models in order to assess the importance of multi-mode effects on LFF dynamics.
