Paper Abstract

Aspheric-mirror laser resonators are designed, which support Bessel-Gauss modes of arbitrary order. Conventional Gaussian-beam and Fabry-Perot resonators are obtained in the appropriate limits of pure Gaussian and Bessel mode. High modal discrimination is demonstrated numerically with the Fox-Li algorithm, and practical realization of Bessel-Gauss beams in resonators is addressed.
