Paper Abstract

Laser diode arrays oscillate in multiple spatial and longitudinal modes. Adaptive optics is the field dedicated to automatic compensation for wavefront distortion. A number of approaches are available to achieve spatial and spectral control of high power diode lasers using phase conjugate mirrors. A new method is being developed to determine phase (and hence, phase distortion) using wavelet ridge extraction. In addition, an adaptive wavelet system will be developed to cancel distortion.
