Abstract
An approximate method of the modeling of nonlinear operation of the segment laser containing saturable absorber is presented. An analytical condition for the bistable operation as a function of the system parameters is derived beyond mean field approximation. The influence of the output mirror reflectivity, the linear losses, the saturable losses, the ratio of the active medium length to the saturable loss medium length on hysteresis loop is investigated. The results are compared to the predictions of the exact solutions, and they are found to be in qualitative agreement as well as in good quantitative agreement.
