Abstract

The beam combination method using stimulated Brillouin scattering phase conjugate mirrors (SBS-PCMs) is a promising technique for a high energy and high power laser output operating with a high repetition rate. The two-beam combined system was previously demonstrated with an amplitude dividing method. A four-beam combined laser system with amplitude dividing method is demonstrated in this work, and the phase stabilization experiment of this system is performed using the self phase control and the long-term stabilization technique. The phase differences between the SBS waves are stabilized with λ/30 and the fluctuation of the four-beam combined output energy is 6.16% during 2000 shots (200 s).
