Abstract

The cavity modes of metal strip waveguide lasers are most simply expressed in terms of Airy-Hermite-Gaussian functions. The free space propagation of the resulting beam modes has been examined, and both near- and far-field patterns have been calculated and measured. Phase plates may be useful for enhancing the far-field intensity.
