Abstract

A stimulated Brillouin scattering phase-conjugate mirror with the organic nonlinear optical crystal deuterated l-arginine phosphate monohydrate has shown a reflectivity of more than 80% at 1064 nm. We demonstrate the correction of a deliberate aberration for a 10-Hz Nd:YAG laser by this crystal.
