Abstract
An optical phase conjugation and laser pulse compression of laser light via stimulated Brillouin scattering at high energy are investigated. SBS operation at high-energy and high average power in fluorocarbon liquids is clarified. Fundamental nonlinear and SBS optics data on particle-free Fluorinert liquids are presented. High capacity SBS cells filed with particle-free Fluorinert liquids were used to demonstrate a very high energy SBS mirror in recent experiments at GEKKO XII laser facility. The pulses of energy as high as 73 Joules were phase conjugated using a SBS phase conjugating mirror. High energy SBS laser pulse compressor was operated at the level 30 Joules. Laser pulse with duration 13 ns FWHM was compressed to 0.6 ns with a high SBS internal efficiency.
