Abstract
We describe and analyze an original technique for all-optical and high gain (approximately 103 - 106) amplification of a periodically modulated (PM) intensity low-power (approximately (mu) W) laser radiation. The amplification is based on the injection locking control in linear laser schemes with homogeneously broadened active medium. The main problem of the injection locking amplifiers is to obtain a linear response to the PM injection. We propose to solve this problem by injecting a second laser beam with a constant power and a slightly different wavelength or orthogonal polarization compared to the injected PM beam.
