Paper Abstract

Shot-to-shot stability of organic liquid based phase conjugate mirrors was studied experimentally and theoretically in order to define stable operating regimes when incorporated into pulsed laser systems. Reflectivity over five orders of magnitude was measured and the standard deviations were analyzed. A general dependence between standard deviation and reflectivity was found to occur. Good stability (+/- 2%) was achieved at reflectivities of 80% when the input laser energy was 5 to 10 times greater than threshold.
