Paper Abstract

Analytical and numerical results for guardband criteria for unstable-resonator mode calculations are discussed. The energy-loss guardband derivation is outlined, guardband criteria based on the point-by-point accuracy of the computed amplitude of the complex field are determined, and point-accuracy guardband calculations are presented. Using the criteria established, the new guardband calculated for the propagation step, N(c) = 9.5 and N(eq) = 3.56, is found to be much larger than previous calculations. It is pointed out that the power calculations are nearly the same for these guardband requirements and those based on a percent energy loss.
