Paper Abstract

The effect of intracavity aberration perturbation on output mode structure properties of passive confocal unstable resonator is been experimentally researched by adopting Hartmann-Shack method on the basis of numerical simulation. The results show that intracavity tilt aberration affects the outcoupled intensity distribution, but only a small intracavity tilt perturbation will not obviously augment the high-order aberrations of beam phase properties. The tilt aberration, coma aberration and astigmatism will all be brought, and also tilt aberration is the main component when intracavity mirrors have a vertical movement along the direction of optic axis. When adaptive optical elements such as deformable mirrors are adopted for intracavity aberration correction, the correction for tilt aberration should be considered at first.
