Abstract

Phased-array resonators provide an important basis for achieving high output powers from arrays of low-power elements. We have recently proposed a novel form of 1-to-N-way phased-array resonator based on the beam splitting and regeneration characteristics of rectangular sectioned multimode waveguides. We compare its performance with that of the widely used, yet problematic, Talbot resonator. Our design is found to have significant advantages over the Talbot resonator in terms of improved modal stability, unique photon-mixing characteristics, and near- and far-field outputs of quasi-Gaussian form.
