Abstract
In order to study the damage characteristic of the contaminated resonating mirror in high power continuous wave (cw) laser system, we established a theoretical model based on the optical transmission theory with a gain medium. The optical propagation in the cavity is calculated utilizing a Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) repeatedly until the convergence of the calculations tend to a steady-state oscillation mode pattern. The influence of the contaminant size, the contaminant number and the cavity structure on the damage characteristic of the resonating mirror is studied in the theoretical model.
