Abstract : The patent describes a laser which achieves a high repetition rate by using a central rotating reflector and a single spherical reflector. If the intersection of the axis of rotation and surface of the central reflector is exactly on the center of the spherical reflector, a beam entering on the axis of rotation and focused on the spherical reflector will be constantly retro-reflected while the central reflector rotates about its rotational axis.
