Paper Abstract

The Fox and Li iterative method is used to find solutions for a three-dimensional phase conjugate resonator with a saturated gain, a random aberrator and a pinhole spatial filter. The performance of such a resonator is excellent for resonator Fresnel numbers as small as five and for phase error standard deviations as large as 2π. The use of a spatial filter to control the transverse mode shape is demonstrated.
