Abstract

The results of a study on the spatial coherence of a generalized diffraction-filtered resonator (GDFR) copper vapor laser (CVL) for various magnifications are presented. The coherence width and output power are compared with that of unstable resonators (UR’s) of equivalent magnifications. It is established, by use of reversal shear interferometry, that the GDFR CVL beam has better spatial coherence and average power characteristics than the UR CVL beam for equivalent resonator magnifications.
