Abstract

Faculty of Liberal Education, Seoul National University, Seoul 08826, Korea(Received August 26, 2020 : revised November 17, 2020 : accepted November 28, 2020)We present the Shannon entropy as an indicator of the spatial resolutions of the morphologies of the resonance mode patterns in an optical resonator. We obtain each optimized number of mesh points, one of minimum size and the other of maximum one. The optimized mesh-point number of minimum size is determined by the identifiable quantum number through a chi-squared test, whereas the saturation of the difference between Shannon entropies corresponds to the other mesh-point number of maximum size. We also show that the optimized minimum mesh-point increases as the (real) wave number increases and approximates the proportionality constant between them.
