As has been reported earlier in the literature, a cylindrical laser with a conical end reflector produces a higher order tangentially polarized output due to polarization effects at the cone. By applying a special dielectric coating which produced a 90° phase shift between the S and P polarizations, the polarization effect of the cone was eliminated, and a uniformly polarized, lowest order mode output was obtained.
