Abstract

We analyze the transmission of a Gaussian beam of low divergence (optical beam) through a high-finesse Fabry–Perot device (R ≈ 70–80%). A detailed calculation of the parameters characterizing the beam (width and curvature radius) is given, and a discussion of the Fabry–Perot effect for low (R < 50%) and very high finesses (R > 90%) also is presented.
