Passive phase-locking and coherent combining of lasers

"Passive phase-locking and coherent combining of lasers"

Prof. Amiel Ishaaya, Ben Gurion University, Israel

The possibility of combining several lasers into one high brightness powerful laser beam is appealing to many practical applications. Various beam-combining approaches have been investigated which can be divided into three main categories: incoherent, active coherent, and passive coherent combining approaches.
This talk will focus on passive interferometric laser beam combining using compact, plane parallel, intracavity combiners.
The basic configurations along with our results in both solid-state and fiber laser configurations will be presented, and various aspects and the possible up-scalability of this approach will be discussed.
