Paper Abstract

The powerful neodymium lasers with the self-phase-conjugation (SPC) and passive Q-swither are submitted. It is shown, that the application of a LiF:F2- crystal as Q-swither and SPC-mirror simultaneously, and also a Sagnac interferometer as end reflector of the cavity allows to increase efficiency and quality SPC-radiation. High power and spatial laser characteristics are obtained: Nd:YAG laser -- 114 W average power at 0.5 mrad beam divergence; Nd:YAP laser -- 51 W average power at 1.2 mrad beam divergence; Nd:Glass laser -- 18 J in pulse train at 1 mrad beam divergence.
