Paper Abstract

Scaling studies of a Cr:LiSAF power oscillator are being performed and 80W average output power has been achieved at 10Hz repetition rate using a newly designed transverse flow cell. An SBS phase conjugate system using Fluorinert FC-75 has been set up and reflectivity measurements indicate very good fidelity with reflectivities >60%, at pulse energies of less than 1J.
