Paper Abstract

This paper reviews recent results on the power scaling of solid-state lasers using phase conjugation. We present the basic ideas involved in employing phase conjugation to compensate thermally induced aberrations in the laser medium, and we discuss the results of recent experiments in which birefringence in an active laser amplifier was successfully compensated.
