Paper Abstract

A method is presented by which the feedback and effective magnification of a high extraction efficiency decentered annular ring resonator (HEXDARR) can be changed, with the introduction of a flux-redistribution irradiance mapping optical pair, into the compact leg of the resonator. The mirror pair shapes were derived, and, using ray-trace methods, it is verified that the desired redistribution is effected. It is also shown that the specification of the mirror surfaces given by the equations derived meet the requirements for reducing the effective magnification and introducing no phase errors.
