Paper Abstract

The coupling of an external cavity to a laser induces effects that are generally modeled by a plane wave treatment, even though laser optics is rather based on beams having a finite lateral extent. We demonstrate that a Fabry- Perot interferometer acts like an apertured mirror in the sense that its reflectivity can be higher for the TEM00 mode than for the TEM01 mode. We consider the single- frequency and multi-frequency cases.
