Description/Abstract

Phase conjugation via stimulated Brillouin scattering in CH4 gas has been used to correct amplifier aberrations in a Nd:YAG oscillator/amplifier system. The single amplifier stage has been used in two-pass and four-pass arrangements. Using the four-pass arrangement incorporating compensation for thermal birefringence, a single-frequency diffraction-limited output of 350mJ, in a compressed 6ns pulse is achieved at 15Hz repetition rate.
