Paper Abstract

A multidither resonator alignment scheme has been developed which automatically aligns the optical components of a laser to optimize its performance and then maintains the alignment despite further disturbances to the optical components. This was demonstrated on a reflaxiconcone Half Symmetric Unstable Resonator with Internal Axicon (HSURIA) laser, controlling azimuth and elevation of the feedback mirror to maximize Far Field Power-in-the-Bucket.
