Paper Abstract

By properly designing the laser optical resonator, an optimal match between brightness and coherence can be achieved. This paper discusses one such design for an oxygen iodine laser and shows measured beam profiles. The laser mode was shaped and optically relayed to a test specimen. Very uniform beams of high brightness were measured at the plane of the test sample. This paper also presents this data.
