Abstract:

By incorporating a phase-conjugating process Stimulated Brillouin Scattering with a master oscillator power amplifier laser cavity, a new phase conjugate resonator PCR is obtained. The PCR utilizes flashlamp-pumped dye lasers and a resonator cavity that is formed by a 100 mirror on one end and a Stimulated Brillouin Scattering SBS cell on the other end. The SBS cell functions as one of the mirrors of the resonator and causes the entire system to operate as a phase conjugate resonator. The result is vastly improved an order of magnitude beam qualities over conventional resonators for large lamp systems. Patent applications. RH
