Paper Abstract

A novel method for mode optimization of a high-power laser is presented in this paper. A binary optical resonator is formed through introducing binary optical technology into a laser resonator. The traditional spherical mirrors are substituted by binary optical mirrors. Diffraction analyses show that this kind of resonator can construct any modes as desired with a strong ability of mode selecting and optimization. For a high-power CO2 laser, an optimum design of the binary optical resonator is implemented to obtain a fundamental-mode laser output with a uniform intensity distribution.
