Paper Abstract

This paper deals with the analysis and design of dye-laser resonators, using an optical transfer matrix which describes the behavior of a plane grating in Littrow mounting. The presence of a diffraction grating in a resonator cavity introduces an operation asymmetry in the planes parallel and transverse to the grating's grooves (X and Y operations). Our matrix analysis allows to characterize the resonator stability for both operation planes. Several resonator configurations are discussed and an improved design is proposed.
