Abstract
This paper will review a very general and useful formalism that has recently been developed for defining the transverse beam quality as well as other propagation parameters of arbitrary real laser beams. We also describe a convenient new instrument for measuring the propagation parameters of high-power laser beams, and summarize some results of beam quality measurements on various types of laser devices.
