Paper Abstract

The application of Raman amplification to the problem of adaptive control over high-power lasers is reviewed. This particular application requires that no phase or intensity distortion present on the pumping laser be transferred to the phasefront of the Stokes beam. Several, recent experiments have shown that high-gain Raman amplification can preserve the phasefront of the output Stokes beam. These results are reviewed and compared to the predictions of theory.
