Abstract

The stability condition of a resonator formed by a 90° cone and mirror has been derived using ray tracing techniques. The result showed that this type of resonator is relatively insensitive to mirror misalignment. From this basis, the mirror misalignment tolerance was studied experimentally. Output energy and transverse mode characteristics vs. misalignment were measured, and the results show that this type of resonator does possess certain advantages over the two-mirror resonator.
