Abstract : The patent describes a laser using two 100 percent reflective surfaces and a prism positioned in the laser cavity between the reflective surfaces. A majority of the beam is reflected off one side of the prism and directed to a reflective surface where it reflects toward the prism while the rest of the beam is transmitted through the prism to form an elliptical output beam.
