Paper Abstract

The gain optical guide effects in a COIL are found and studied for the first time. The non-uniform distribution of gain in one transverse direction is assumed to be caused by non-uniform injection of the secondary flow. Our calculations who that the gain and optical guide effects have an important influence on the transverse shape of the optical field, which results in some effects such as the reduce of the output power and the offset of the optical beam, which have been observed in the experiments made in China Academy of Engineering Physics.
