We showed theoretically that coordinate transformation is effective in laser cavities because self-reproducible and coordinate-transformed complex amplitude pairs can exist in a laser cavity. Therefore, the intensity profiles in laser cavities can be designed within the limitations of the compatibility conditions.

Key words : coordinate transformation, laser cavity, beam-forming, self-reproducible complex amplitude
