RP Resonator – Advanced Software for
Laser Resonator Design and Optimization

A Powerful Tool for Designing and Optimizing Optical Resonators

RP Resonator V4 is a powerful software for calculations on optical resonators. In particular, it can be used to produce optimized laser resonator designs. Its user interface combines uttermost flexibility with an easy start, making the software suitable for quick calculations in an industrial environment as well as for advanced research.

RP Resonator

Compared with other resonator design software, RP Resonator is far more flexible. For example, you can have any parameters of the resonator setup calculated using some mathematical expressions. You can even generate resonator components within loops, so that by changing a single parameter you can even modify the number of components in your setup. (For example, you could state that you want sequence of N crystals with some air spaces and lenses or mirrors in between.) Also, you can automatically optimize resonator parameters such that a freely defined figure of merit is minimized. For complex resonator design tasks, such functionality is not just nice to have, but essential.

Many Powerful Features

The main features of RP Resonator V4 are:

Having these features, the software can be applied in a great variety of cases. The probably most important application is the design of laser resonators. Some examples are shown as demos.

Another important aspect of this software: you can verify that its developer surely understands the involved physics and knows the scientific literature. He will be the person who makes sure that any problem you may have with using the software will be solved very soon. Substantial technical support – also usable for more general consultancy on related technical matters! – is included in the license fee.

The powerful combination of software and competent support helps you to achieve fast and very efficient progress in your development projects.
