Paper Abstract

The focal spot size and intensity of CO2 laser beams which are used for fusion studies is degraded because of manufacturing defects in the optics train and because of alignment errors. Phase conjugation can in principle provide diffraction-limited performance despite imperfect optical components. This paper describes how such a system might be adapted to existing laser systems and discusses the problem areas which may be encountered.
