How to create an optical cavity in MATLAB?

  1. Oct 3, 2013 #1
    I have 2 beams going through a medium which produces more beams on the output of different frequencies.

    How can I introduce a mirrored cavity, so the beams travel inside the medium bouncing off four mirrors with the last one being partially reflective so some light exits.

    Is it boundry conditions i need? To get the mirrors more realistic i need to have the mirrors reflecting different frequencies... in real life mirrors arent 100% perfect so different frequencies get reflected at a higher efficiency.

    Any help at all would be great.
