Abstract

A scaling method is applied to the study of the characteristics of a laser resonator. Experimental tests performed on a Fabry-Perot resonator with plane square mirrors operating in the X band are described. Measurements of frequency and quality factors of the resonator modes along with field distributions are reported and the results discussed. Particularly the close correlation between mirror deformations and field patterns is shown.
