With the agility of cavity control in solid-state-laser, we report abundant experimental phenomena of relatively complete Laguerre-Gaussian (LG) transverse multimodes transformation process including both stable and transitional status in a diode pumped Nd:YVO4 microcavity laser. Cavity structure, absorber, pump power, etc, synthetically have been found to contribute such abundant generation of patterns.
