Paper Abstract

It is important for a laser beam with divergence angle as small as possible and large mode volume. For the fundamental mode of the common laser resonator, in which the reflective mirrors are spherical, the beam waist is very small, so the output power is very poor. The separation of adjacent transverse modes is often small. Maximizing the discrimination to gain a single mode output with larger power is necessary. It is very difficult to meet these requirements for the common laser resonators. So it is necessary for the laser resonator to perform the mode selecting.
