Paper Abstract

The use of 'V' and 'U' folds in waveguide resonators has been studied experimentally and compared with simple theory. The potential for size reduction and lower loss ( < 3% single pass) of the 'U' fold configurations is exploited in the construction of a 50 watt, compact device with heterodyne quality output mode. Intracavity modulation techniques applicable to this technology are also discussed.
