Calculation of the near field phase in unstable resonators with mirror misfigures

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

A method is presented for finding the output phase front ψ(r,ϕ) of a large Fresnel number unstable resonator misfigures and misalignments. The technique, which is based on geometric optics, can also be with mirror used to analyze the effects of index of refraction variations. The near-field phase is then used to find the far-field on-axis intensity.
