Paper Abstract

An algorithm for diffraction-based modeling of optical systems for laser devices has been developed. The direct integration is used for the Rayleigh-Sommerfeld formula throughout the system, so optical elements with non-plane surfaces may be adequately treated. The integration is based on the modified Cotes quadrature formula and ensures both high accuracy and speed. A method for the diffraction-based search for an initial scheme for optimization is also proposed. Thus the whole synthesis procedure for a laser optical system may be performed on the basis of diffraction theory.
