Paper Abstract

The results of performance theoretical optimization of laser system consisting of a cw chemical HF laser Master Oscillator- Power Amplifier (MOPA) configuration, of a beam-director telescope and of a phase conjugate mirror are presented. The following optimal physical parameters have been found: required active medium length of Power Amplifier, required master oscillator output power, optimal relation between diffraction coefficients of splitting on the diffraction optical element onto the surface of the secondary mirror of laser beam-director telescope to the zero and first orders, required level of the threshold power to ensure phase conjugation by stimulated Brillouin scattering.
