Now we proceed to studying of one of the most interesting issues of our lecture course: the open resonance structures. The description begins from the discussion of the main idea and main properties of open cavity resonators (Sect. 11.1). One of the greatest discoveries of the twentieth century – the creation of a laser became possible owing to the usage of open-system (a waveguide, a resonator) properties. The main feature of the open structure is the capability to “spontaneously” become free from the spurious types of waves (oscillations). The honor of discovering these properties of open systems belongs to Prokhorov. The evolution chain of oscillating systems at operating frequency increases from the resonant single-circuit to the open resonator we have tracked in Sect. 10.2.1 (Chap. 10). Here, we note some of the main classes of open resonators, which are formed as a part of both the waveguide with open ends and waveguides from the focusing mirrors. In particular, we describe the class of open cylindrical coaxial resonators. Based on these, systems with an extremely rare spectrum of fundamental frequencies were developed (the Nefyodov–Rossiyskiy effect). This resonator can serve, for example, as a model of the plasma-beam discharge discovered and investigated by Russian academician P. Kapitsa.
