Abstract
Active coherent beam combination has been a hot area of research for several years. Particular algorithm module is used to stabilize the phase difference between beamlets, and make them coherent. The phase noise increases with the raising power of laser output. Under low power condition, we simulate the phase noise of high power laser amplifier by the Arbitrary Function Generators (AFGs), and send them to the phase modulators to destabilize the phase, to test the performance of the phase lock algorithm. The experimental results show the feasibility.
