Abstract
The radiation at the output aperture of an unstable resonator generally consists of a circular or rectangular annular beam with a predictable intensity and phase distribution. This paper presents useful design curves, as a function of the intensity and phase distribution at the output aperture, of the normalized far-field on-axis intensity and the fraction of the total power within a prescribed spot size in the far-field focal plane.
