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)
