Paper Abstract

In lasers with diffraction-limited beam quality, aberrations cause diffraction losses which reduce power output. Diffraction limit may not be attained due to phase distribution and amplitude modulation. Adaptive aberration correction has been principally achieved by either Deformable Mirrors or Phase Conjugate Mirrors. A new approach to adaptive optics based on wavelet-based phase extraction will be applied to distortion correction in diode array lasers.
