Abstract
We consider resonator designs with a range of effective magnifications (1.2 to 2.95), and show how these resonators perform. Specifically, we analyze power extraction performance, internal power gains and losses, and resonator wavefront beam quality for this range of effective magnifications. As perturbations, we consider the effect of struts and compact leg misalignments. We find that, at the lower levels of magnification, the resonators produce more power but are more sensitive to perturbations.
