We consider a nonlinear optical system in general, and a broad aperture laser, in particular, in a resonator where the diffraction coefficients are of opposite signs along two transverse directions. The system is described by the hyperbolic Maxwell-Bloch equations, where the spatial coupling is provided by the D'Alambert operator rather than by the Laplace operator. We show that this system supports hyperbolic transverse patterns residing on hyperbolas in far-field domain, and consisting of… CONTINUE READING
