Abstract

The performance of a phase-conjugate cavity using a stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS) reflector to control the spatial and spectral output of a coaxial flash-lamp-pumped dye laser is reported. The divergence of the output from the phase-conjugate laser cavity was measured and shown to be a significant improvement over that of the conventional resonator. Both gaseous and liquid nonlinear materials were used as the SBS media. With the gaseous medium periods of oscillation exceeding 1 μs were observed, which is longer than the FWHM duration of the output from the comparable conventional resonator.
