The computation of optical modes inside axisymmetric cavity resonators with a general spatial permittivity profile is a formidable computational task. In order to avoid spurious modes the vector Helmholtz equations are discretised by a mixed finite element approach. We formulate the method for first and second order Nédélec edge and Lagrange nodal elements.(More)

Dedicated to my wife Rosa, and my children Alex and Sarah ii Acknowledgments The work documented in this thesis is the result of a common effort, after all there is no use for an ultra-stable super-efficient optical setup without anything to measure. I would like to start by thanking my thesis advisor Prof. Andrea Fiore for the countless hours spent on(More)
