Paper Abstract

The stimulated Brillouin scattering effects in liquids is used in conjunction with a 10 ns Q- switched Nd:YAG laser to produce optical pulses of subnanosecond rise time. Various optical schemes are described using Brillouin oscillators and Brillouin amplifiers. The compressed optical pulse is intended to activate a GaAs photoconductive switch producing ten's of MW of electrical power with subnanosecond rise time.
