finesse.gaussian.optimise_HG00_q_scipy(e, q, homs, accuracy=1e-06, return_fit_result=False, fix_spot_size=False, astigmatic=False)[source]

Computes the optimal complex beam parameter to describe an optical field, described by a vector of HG modes. This optimisation assumes that the field to be optimised is approximately a HG00 beam shape.

The algorithm maximises the amount of HG00 present in a beam by varying the x and y complex beam parameter.


Array of complex HG mode amplitudes to be optimised

q[complex | finesse.BeamParam] or tuple

x and y complex beam parameter basis that e is in. If a singular value is given qx=qy, else (qx, qy) should be provided.

homslist(tuple(n, m))

List of HG mode indices for each element in e

accuracyfloat, optional

level to suppress HG20 and HG02 modes to

return_fit_resultbool, optional

When True the optimised result from Scipy minimize is returned.

fix_spot_sizebool, optional

When True a non-linear optimiser is used and keeps the spot sized fixed to its current value. Useful for when you expect just the curvature of a beam to be changing.

astigmaticbool, optional

When True the x and y beam parameters will be optimised separately. If you know they should be equal then set this to False.

qx, qy(finesse.BeamParam, finesse.BeamParam)

Optimised beam parameters
