Abstract

We demonstrate what is believed to be the first phase-coherent locking of a high-power broad-area diode to a single-frequency master laser. We use photorefractive double phase conjugation to lock the diode in a self-optimized complex spatial mode while the photorefractive crystal diffracts that complex mode in a near-diffraction-limited beam.
