Abstract

In this paper, we investigate the properties of the hole coupled, slab waveguide resonator to extract a high quality beam from a slab waveguide laser. We will consider two versions of hole-coupling of power from rectangular hollow waveguide resonators. The first employs two 100% reflective, plane mirrors, one of which contains a slot to enable extraction of the optical beam. The second utilizes the same slotted front mirror, but has a back mirror formed by a diffractive optical element patterned into the fully reflective substrate, thereby allowing the intra-cavity intensity to be tailored for easier extraction through the hole.
