Abstract

This paper estimates and measures the influences of mismatch and misalignment on continuous-wave cavity ring-down spectroscopy. We describe the theoretical differences in maladjustment effects on power transfer under different resonant cavity configurations and present a method for reducing the impact of maladjustment. Finally, we demonstrate a method for measuring the effect of maladjustment on power transfer when a Gaussian beam is matched to a triangular ring resonator.
