Abstract:

A new approach for multi-channel solid-state laser beam combining is proposed based on optical phase conjugation in a coupled-cavity laser configuration. The proposed scheme allows automatic synchronization of the channels' mutual coherency, thereby achieving maximum efficiency of combined beam oscillation with simultaneous compensation of introduced aberrations. It is proposed to use the laser medium as the nonlinear medium for FWM OPC due to its spatially inhomogeneous saturation in the interference field of the interacting beams. The proposed configuration allows scaling the laser system to the multi-kilowatt power level.
