dissipated power | initial losses | compensation power | minimal losses | wavefront curvature |

10 mW | 350 ppm | 1.2 W | 5 ppm | |

20 mW | 1,400 ppm | 2.4 W | 19 ppm | |

30 mW | 3,100 ppm | 3.6 W | 43 ppm | |

100 mW | 34,300 ppm | 12 W | 481 ppm | |

We can see (Table 12) that the performance of the axicon system is better than that of the heating ring (lower compensating powers, lower optimal losses), but not by orders of magnitude.
