Maxwell in Laser cavity

  1. Sep 7, 2011 #1
    Hello guys,

    I've been trying to solve Maxwell's Equations in a laser cavity, with length L.
    However I cannot...
    I've searched over the net to find a proper solution but I couldn't.

    I started by taking a field E(x,y,x,t)=E0 e(x,y)e-jw te-jb z.
    I take the phasor E(x,y,z)=e(x,y)e-jb z and I put it in the Maxwell's equations

    [itex]\nabla x E = -j \omega \mu_0 H[/itex]
    [itex]\nabla x H = j \omega \epsilon_0 E[/itex]

    where H=the phasor of the magnetic field=[itex]h(x,y)e^{-j \beta z}[/itex].

    Any ideas??? Please...
