Paper Abstract

One of the most troublesome problems encountered when using diode laser arrays is that their beam quality is typically quite poor. In this paper, we present a possible solution to this problem. By using the photorefractive properties of materials such as barium titanate (BaTiO3) it is possible, through two-wave mixing (TWM) and phase conjugation, to obtain near-diffraction-limited Gaussian beams from diode laser sources.
