Abstract

A phase-conjugate ring laser operating on a single longitudinal mode and with good beam quality (TEM00) is reported. Phase conjugation is achieved with stimulated Brillouin scattering by CS2. The system acts as an oscillator–two-pass amplifier system, and the intensity-dependent reflectivity of stimulated-Brillouin scattering, positioned outside the ring oscillator, acts as a Q switch.
