Abstract

By the formation of two Brillouin mirrors at either end of a methane chamber, a Brillouin cavity has been produced that is capable of oscillation when injected by a laser pulse. The pulse-compressing mechanisms of the Brillouin mirrors cause a train of intense short-duration pulses to be produced, and the Brillouin cavity displays the characteristic of a phase-conjugate resonator.
