By analogy, a resonator that is composed of an axicon and a spherical mirror is expected to support Bessel-Gauss modes.
For these open cavities, the small coupling holes of the input and output are placed on the spherical mirror and the material to be measured is placed on the planar mirror.
In addition this entire process has led to a better understanding of the SALT spherical mirror paradigm and how it operates.
The presence of the spherical mirror reduces the external quantum efficiency of the trap (compared with the three-diode design), but increases the coupling efficiency for larger values of numerical aperture (NA) [3].
The cavity used is semi-confocal, that is, the flat mirror is placed at half the radius of the spherical mirror.
