Abstract

A method of calculating the angular alignment tolerance of a Porro prism laser oscillator is presented. The reduction in mode volume due to misalignment is found by a ray optical approach. An analytical expression for alignment tolerance, in terms of resonator length L, prism azimuth angle θ, rod location L2, and rod aperture radius a is obtained. An experiment was set up to measure the laser output reduction due to reflector tilting. Results obtained are in good agreement with the theoretical predictions.
