Abstract
A design method for unstable laser resonators is presented offering the possibility of generating a user defined outcoupled beam profile. The described method based upon surface structured resonator mirrors as they are known from mode shaping of stable laser resonators. The design method is demonstrated by an example design of a hard-edged unstable resonator having a Gaussian intensity profile of the outcoupled beam.
