An optical resonator usually consists of mirrors or lenses which are configured in such a way that the beam of light is confined in a closed path. Resonators are fundamental components used in many safety-critical optical and laser applications such as laser surgery, aerospace industry and nuclear reactors. Due to the complexity and sensitivity of optical resonators, their verification poses many challenges to optical engineers. Traditionally, the stability analysis of such resonators, which is…
