Abstract

We study the effect of nonparaxiality in a folded resonator by accurate measurements of the Gouy phase as a function of the mode number for mode numbers up to 1500. Our experimental method is based on tuning the resonator close to a frequency-degenerate point. The Gouy phase shows a nonparaxial behavior that is much stronger in the folding plane than in the perpendicular plane. Agreement with ray-tracing simulations is established, and a link with aberration theory is made.
