Paper Abstract

The Laser Wavefront Analyzer at the Air Force Weapon Laboratory records a 32 x 32 array of intensity and phase information for a 10 cm square input aperture at a rate of 100 frames per second. This device has been used to characterize the single pass gain profile and wavefront phase quality for a 15 cm diameter flowing carbon dioxide amplifier. The results of this experiment will be presented.
