Abstract

The propagation and focusing properties of a class of Gaussian beams generated by optical resonators with Gaussian reflectivity mirrors are investigated. Attention is concentrated on the following two beams in this class: (a) the annular Gaussian beam (the Gaussian doughnut mode) and (b) the flat-topped Gaussian beam. A class of flat-topped Gaussian beams is introduced. All analysis is limited to a coherent superposition scheme of the lowest-order Gaussian modes (TEM00) that have different parameters.
