Paper Abstract

This work analyzes the influence of phase distortions caused by variable-reflectivity multilayer dielectric mirrors on the spatial and energetic characteristics of the output radiation of lasers with unstable and plane-parallel resonators. The phase distortion of such mirrors has been considered in dependence on design parameters of optical coating. Some application peculiarities of soft-edge mirrors for the Cassegrain and Fabry-Perot resonators of lasers are discussed. The work represents some recommendations for the mirror design that ensures the optimal output laser beam characteristics.
