Paper Abstract

The features of liquid purification from molecular and dispersive admixtures are studied. The analysis has revealed the processes (thermal effects, microparticles heating with a subsequent optical breakdown, stimulated Raman scattering) limiting pumping pulse energy. These effects complicate also a realization of a high quality phase conjugation at SBS. The data concerning physical properties of liquid tetrachlorides and freons are presented. The picture of a behavior of liquid under conditions of an optical breakdown is described. Some recommendations regarding a choice of nonlinear media are formulated. The two-cell scheme providing a phase conjugation of powerful short laser pulses is proposed.
