Abstract

The stable injection locking of 0.8-µm diode lasers with a double phase-conjugate mirror (DPCM) was achieved. Phase modulation by piezoelectric transducers allowed us to keep two input beams of the DPCM mutually incoherent during locking. We preserved the high performance of the DPCM and retained stable locking for more than an hour.
