Abstract

We report an axial-asymmetric high-Q Fabry–Perot cavity supporting nondegenerate Hermite–Gaussian modes of the same mode order. Axial asymmetry of mirror surface was introduced by mechanically grinding off one side of a cylindrical mirror substrate without degrading the original mirror quality. The bases of the resulting Hermite–Gaussian modes were aligned with respect to the direction of grinding, making it possible to prescribe the mirror principal axes.
