Abstract
Precision machined optics have been used in an experimental study of resonator design concepts for annular gain region lasers. The most practical annular laser resonator tested was a half symmetric unstable resonator that used a precision machined axicon and cone. Included in this paper are photographs of the far-field intensity distribution.
