Paper Abstract

A high average power laser oscillator with a cavity completed by a nonlinear mirror formed by refractive index gratings which accompany population gratings induced in Nd:YAG laser crystals by generating beams themselves is investigated experimentally. The spatio-temporal self- adaptation of the cavity formed by nonlinear dynamic mirrors is studied. The generation of beams with average power up to 250W, near-diffraction-limited divergence and long coherence length is demonstrated.
