Abstract

We report a new design for a polarization-selective laser cavity with birefringent diffractive phase elements. This laser cavity can create two modes with different polarizations and profiles launched separately from two end mirrors. The numerical simulation results show that the constructed laser cavity can successfully generate two orthogonal polarization modes with a uniform circular shaped pattern output from one end mirror and a uniform square-shaped pattern output from another end mirror.
