Paper Abstract

The laser system ''oscillator-amplifier'1' was developed to provide the high spectral brightness (linewidth < 0.02 cm ) and diffraction limited divergence of radiation. Spectral narrowing was achieved by the use of dispersive intracavity elements. The oscillator radiation was amplified by double pass amplifier with phase conjugate SBS mirror. Oscillator and amplifier were separated with etalon, tuned on Brillouin shifted wavelength reflection. As a Brillouin scattering medium both liquid n-hexane and quartz-polymer fiber were utilized. In contrast with n-hexane the use of fiber decreased the SBS threshold more than two order of magnitude.
