Chapter 4 Application of Oplls in Coherent Beam Combining 4.1 Introduction of Coherent Beam Combining 4.1.1 Spectral Beam Combining Vs Coherent Beam Combining

    High power, high brightness lasers with diffraction limited beam quality have been sought since the earliest days of laser technology. Today, high power gas lasers, solid state lasers and fiber lasers are able to output thousands of watts of light under continuous-wave operation. Further increase of the power will be limited by thermo-optic effects… CONTINUE READING
