Abstract

The theory of the multiple-pass cell based on the use of retroreflectors is presented. As a result of this study, it is shown that it is possible to construct an enhanced White cell with zero geometric loss. Starting from theoretical considerations of the design of a new monolithic multiple-face retroreflector, a multiple-pass cell is proposed. Ray-tracing simulations indicate that this cell is easy to align and has zero geometric loss over a very long optical path.
