A technique is presented in which the full vector solution for resonator modes is synthesized from the known scalar solution. Second-order perturbation theory is utilized to predict the behavior of a resonator when an imperfect coating on the rear cone results in a phase shift between the s and p polarizations. The theoretical results agree well with a numerical example.
