Abstract
Cavity-induced beam distortion might be reduced by a phase conjugating mirror inside the laser. The promise and problems of doing this in a high-power laser are discussed. After reviewing the oscillation mode theory of resonators with phase conjugators, we discuss the practical limitations at high power. The main issues are (1) availability of pump energy for conjugation, (2) degraded conjugation at high power, and (3) outcoupling the energy from the laser.
