Abstract
Slab lasers offer an inherent advantage over conventional devices when operated in the total internal reflection mode. Further improvements can be gained with these devices using SBS Optical Phase Conjugation. This paper describes experimental and theoretical studies of this combined approach for several geometries. Limitations imposed by thermal distortion, passive losses, birefringence, optical damage, parasitics and extraction efficiencies are addressed. Non-linear frequency conversion with emphasis on improved beam quality is also discussed.
