Paper Abstract

A previously patented design is re-examined as to its advantages over conventional stable and unstable resonators for large bore lasers. Two design options are identified which make the resonator more practical to employ. The equations for specifying the resonator parameters are presented along with a discussion of the unique advantages of this design.
