Abstract
A compact XeCl laser system made up of an oscillator and an amplifier is described. By applying a stimulated Brillouin scattering mirror (SBSM) to the amplifier, an output laser beam of optical and spectral characteristics very close to those of the oscillator has been obtained. By applying to the amplifier a phase conjugate cavity, 1.7m long, formed by an SBSM and a quartz flat window, a pulse train made of pulses separated by the cavity round trip time has been obtained. The first pulse was 8 nsec long while the last pulse was shorter than 2 nsec.
