A new external optical cavity employing a mode-selecting mirror is used to tailor the amplitude and phase of the fundamental array mode and discriminate between higher-order modes. We explore the ability of this phase-coded mirror to select a particular mode and compare it with a conventional Talbot cavity. Diffraction-limited performance of the in-phase fundamental mode is shown.
