Paper Abstract

In this paper, we demonstrate a (3D) analytical solution of stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS) for high reflectivity and fidelity phase conjugation mirrors (PCM). The results are checked with experimental ones, which were obtained with CS2 and optical fibers as nonlinear materials and high PCM reflectivities are found out. Furthermore, analytical SBS reflectivity for pumping with Gauss-Laguerre modes is demonstrated and shown to suppress high modes, when using SBS mirrors. These findings are used in some all solid-state laser (SSL) systems with SBS-PCM in order to obtain near Gaussian beams, depolarization compensation and high brightness.
