Paper Abstract

Stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS) allows control and transfer of phase among beams mixed in the SBS interaction volume. When beams are overlapped near the focal plane in an SBS cell, not only does wavefront reversal occur within each beam, but also the piston error between the beams is conjugated. Backseeding the SBS interaction volume with a low power beam results in SBS threshold reduction as well as a transfer of the phase of the seed beam to that of the Stokes return. This article provides a review of work performed which demonstrates and characterizes both techniques of SBS beam combination.
