in Proceedings of the International Quantum Electronics Conference and Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics Pacific Rim 2011,
(Optical Society of America, 2011), paper C179.
The quality factor of a laser diode beam tailored by Lloyd's mirror
interference is numerically evaluated. A quality factor as low as 1.08 was obtained
for the tailored beam, which was nearly circular in shape.
