Abstract

We present a variant of the method of Fox and Li [ Bell Syst. Tech. J. 40, 453 (1961); Proc. IEEE 51, 80 (1963)] dedicated to intracavity laser beam shaping for resonators containing an arbitrary number of amplitude and phase diffractive optics. Contrary to Fox and Li, the starting point is the desired field. The latter is injected into the usual sequence of lenses representing just a single round trip, and the optimization process iterates until the input and the output fields match as much as possible. We illustrate this technique by deriving a simple model for generating single cylindrical TEM p 0 modes, thanks to a π-phase plate placed inside a plano-concave cavity. The experimental validation attests an excellent agreement with numerical predictions.
