Abstract

The concept of a phase-conjugate etalon mirror consisting of one flat and one aspheric surface is introduced. This new element can be used as an end mirror of a conventional resonator to promote spatial-mode selection and mode shaping. A phase-conjugate etalon designed for the fundamental Gaussian mode is experimentally implemented and tested with a single-mode He-Ne laser.
