1 March 1995 Optical mirrors with variable reflectance
Author Affiliations +
Design procedures of variable reflectance mirrors for laser output couplers are proposed. A thin-film technique has been used for vacuum fabrication of mirrors. By properly choosing both the geometry of the substrate and the masking system, one can obtain quasi-Gaussian or super-Gaussian reflectivity profiles. Such devices have been proposed and successfully tested earlier in our Nd:YAG laser oscillators.
