Abstract
Lasing mechanisms for a laser resonator with cholesteric liquid crystal end mirrors were investigated. The effective radius of curvature of a cholesteric liquid crystal mirror was measured. The slope efficiency of a CLC-dielectric resonator was measured and compared with a flat-flat dielectric resonator with or without a pinhole for a Gaussian output.
