Paper Abstract

We present a new computer numerical model of the phase-conjugate laser, utilizing an intra-cavity Stimulated Brillouin Scattering (SBS) element. The modelled laser system includes the active laser crystal which is placed between the output coupler mirror and a stimulated Brillouin scattering cell. The numerical model includes a set of rate equations for the active crystal inverse population, and for the photon density inside the laser cavity. The SBS backscattering model is based on a reduced set of coupled equations for electromagnetic fields for two waves (a pump wave and an SBS wave) propagating in opposite directions. The numerical integration of the set of equations simulates in detail the temporal dynamics of the laser. A wide range of realistic system parameters was numerically investigated. Different laser regimes (from a quasi -CW mode to a Q-switched mode) were numerically tested. The method of numerical modelling of such laser system can be efficiently used for an optimal laser design.
