Paper Abstract

We have measured the locking range and energy scaling behavior of a system of four pulsed dye oscillators coherently coupled so that they are functionally a single phase conjugate resonator. The locking range is on the order of 100's of wavelengths. Our best results show that one can obtain output energy approximately proportional to N, the number of dye gain cells. Since the N output beams are locked in phase, this implies that the peak far-field intensity would scale as N2. We also report two properties of the photorefractive phase conjugate mirror that are relevant to such a system: the fluence required for start-up and the field of view.
