In this paper, on the basis of literature and the author's own works there has been made a review of various configurations of laser resonators, optical and electro-optical elements, leading to an enlargement of TEM00 mode volume and to a smoothing of its transverse distribution of irradiance, both in a near and a far field. Special attention has been paid to an unstable resonator, `p-branch' type, as well as to an output mirror with a radially variable reflection coefficient. Thus, there has been carried out some kind of review of methods of putting out a laser beam out of resonators. Moreover, in the paper there are summarized advantages and disadvantages of designs of the discussed resonators, causing the smoothing of a transversal distribution of irradiation in a laser beam.
