Paper Abstract

The paper discusses the Laser beam quality characterization at far field for the distant laser energy transportation application and from this starting point proposes four factors to describe the beam quality of high power laser device: focusibility (expressed by θ or M2); stability; uniformity of laser intensity on the near field spot and sustainability.
