Abstract

© 2017 Optical Society of America. We demonstrate a new way to analyze stable, multipass optical cavities (Herriott cells), using the linear canonical transform formalism, showing that re-entrant designs reproduce an arbitrary input field at the output, resulting in useful symmetries. We use this analysis to predict the stability of cavities used in interferometric delay lines for temporal pulse addition.
