Absorption and Gain for Homogeneous Broadening A simplified version of the intensity differentiated about the path length is: Which can be solved to find the normalized intensity of the cavity for homogeneous broadening as: Using the relationships for stimulated emission in a cavity: And the cross section of the stimulated emission in terms of 1/m 2 : g(v) in units of 1/m Where we define N ul in 1/m 3
