The effects of phase shifts in laser beams transmitted by output couplers with a stepwise reflectivity profile have been experimentally investigated with a XeCl laser. It is shown that the phase distortions of the cavity output coupler affect significantly the propagation properties of the output laser beam but do not affect the output beam energy and pulse width. © 1997 Optical Society of America.
