Abstract: A simple model of a Porro prism laser resonator has been found to correctly predict the formation of the “petal” mode patterns typical of these resonators. A geometrical analysis of the petals suggests that these petals are the lowest−order modes of this type of resonator. Further use of the model reveals the formation of more complex beam patterns, and the nature of these patterns is investigated. Also, the output of stable and unstable resonator modes is presented.
