The first way in OSCAR would be to use the function Add_Astigmatism(), it will add to the surface (object of class Interface) a Zernike polynomial of order 2,0 whose amplitude is given as a parameter. That is not always practical, as astigmatism is usually given as difference of radii of curvature. For large Radii of […]
By default, in the simulation, the beam is always defined at the center of the grid. After the definition of a beam, it is possible to shift it by simply offsetting the whole complex field. The offset will be an integer number of pixels to avoid any interpolation. Example: Be sure to have a large […]
It is now possible to display directly the waist and position of the waist once a fundamental Gaussian beam is fitted. Starting with a Gaussian beam: We can now choose to display the waist of the beam: A negative waist position indicates the beam is focusing and so as we propagate the beam will be […]
Intrinsically in FFT code, the Gouy phase is automatically calculated. For design purpose, we would like to calculate the accumulated Gouy phase as the beam propagates. The function attached calculates the Gouy phase of a TEM00 beam for a propagation length defined by the user. The principle behind it is to calculate the phase of […]

I have defined my cavity but when I do a scan over one FSR, I can see the presence of some second order modes. Or when I look at the reflected power, I can see a mode LG10 or I do not have the maximum power gain. All that may indicate that the mode matching […]
