Abstract

Experiments with a XeCl* excimer laser have shown that not all resonator configurations with intracavity Fabry–Perot etalons result in proper output-beam formation. We present a model for the growth of the coherence length in the resonator. This model explains the experimental results with various resonator configurations.
