Abstract
We consider the diffusion rate of the sum and the difference phases of the two circularly polarized modes in a laser operating on a J = 1 -- > J = 0 transition in a polarization-isotropic resonator. It is shown that these diffusion rates have different characteristics; while the d iffusion rate of the sum phase follows the generalized Schawlow-Townes equation, the diffusion rate of the difference phase displays singula r behaviour.
