Abstract

Computational investigations were made of the power loss (output coupling) of misaligned strip unstable resonators as a function of the equivalent Fresnel number for several values of the misalignment parameter in a domain where cusping occurs. The behavior of power loss was found to agree with predictions based on consideration of a separate value of equivalent Fresnel number associated with each side of the resonator axis. Effects of even small misalignments can be quite pronounced.
