Paper Abstract

Based on the F-P interferometer with a radial variation, a mirror with a radial reflectivity variation is achieved by means of constructive interference in the center and destructive interference on the edge. The principle of the variable reflectivity mirror (VRM) is described. Errors are analyzed and estimated. A practical technique for developing the VRM is introduced. Experimental results of using the variable reflectivity output coupler in a Nd:YAG laser is reported.
