Detailed experimental investigations on the amplification characteristics of back-injected simulated Brillouin scattering (SBS) seed laser in solid fused silica rod Brillouin amplifier under different pump power levels have been done, in which a master oscillator power amplifier (MOPA) single longitudinal mode Nd:YAG laser with repetition rate of 400 Hz is used as pumping source, and a large aperture tapered fiber as SBS generator and solid fused silica rod as SBS amplifier. These characteristics include amplified SBS output power, amplification ratio of injected SBS seed laser, total SBS reflectivity, extraction efficiency of fused silica rod Brillouin amplifier, pulse width and beam quality versus SBS seed laser power. A maximum amplified SBS output power of 15.5 W, amplification ratio of 70, total SBS reflectivity of more than 50%, and extraction efficiency of 52% are obtained. Pulse width broadening and gain guiding have been observed. The experimental results indicate that the fused silica rod Brillouin amplifier has different amplification characteristics with small signal SBS seed laser and large signal SBS seed laser. Additionally, the degree of spatial superposition of SBS seed laser and pump laser and the pump power density in fused silica rod are found to be two important aspects which influence the amplified SBS output power.

A large aperture tapered fused silica fiber phase conjugate mirror with a maximum 50.7% stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS) reflectivity is presented, which is operated with 400 Hz pulse repetition rate and 36.5 mJ input pulse energy. To the best of our knowledge, it is the first time that over 50% SBS reflectivity is achieved by using solid-state phase conjugate mirror under such high pulse repetition rate and high pulse energy. With much higher pulse repetition rate of 500 and 1000 Hz, the maximum SBS reflectivity is 41.2% and 33.3%, respectively. A single-longitudinal-mode Nd:YAG laser is experimentally studied with master oscillator power amplifier (MOPA) scheme using such a tapered fiber as a phase conjugate mirror. A 101 mJ pulse energy is achieved at 400 Hz repetition rate, with a pulse width of 6 ns and a M2 factor of less than 2. The corresponding peak power reaches 16.8 MW. © 2010 Elsevier B.V.

The near field properties of circular aperture antennas with Gaussian amplitude distribution are analyzed by the aperture field integration method in this paper. The axial near field and gain expressions of the unfocused and focused circular aperture antennas are deduced. The near-axis field distribution of circular aperture antennas is obtained by numeric integration method. The analysis shows that for the circular aperture antennas with Gaussian amplitude distribution, axial near field varies in an oscillatory manner and the near-field gain is related to both aperture distribution and the distance from the antenna. The near-field gain in the focus can achieve the gain in far field and the field intensity near the focus can be enhanced greatly through aperture focusing.

Aiming at QPSK modulation digital system with variable rate, a novel implementation method based on field programmable gate array (FPGA) is proposed, which can support 4.88Kbps to 2Mbps and even higher continuous bit rate. The design adopts mixed multiplier, numerically controlled oscillator (NCO) and integral comb filter (CIC), and describes the structure of carrier recovery circuit and signal recovery circuit, which can be ported to any FPGA device. The proposed design has its hardware test in the Xilinx Virtex-5 FPGA platform. The hardware test results show that the proposed demodulator only takes up 15% available logical unit of Xilinx Virtex-5 FPGA device, revealing superior ability in efficiency. © Xiquan Xia.

An all solid state master-oscillator-power-amplifier laser system was experimentally investigated using a pulsed-diode-pumped single-longitudinal-mode Nd:YAG laser as a master oscillator. The system was operated with 400 Hz pulse repetition rate. The amplifiers contain a pre-amplifier and a power amplifier. A specially designed large aperture tapered fiber as a solid state phase conjugation mirror was used in the power amplifier to improve the beam quality. The maximum pulse energy of 101 mJ is obtained after double-pass amplification. The pulse duration is less than 6 ns. The corresponding peak power reached 16.8 MW for each single pulse. © 2011 Pleiades Publishing, Ltd.

The output characteristics of misaligned resonator for large-aperture thin disk laser have been studied experimentally and theoretically. A plane output coupler S 1, a concave mirror S 2 and an aperture stop are arranged to define the V-shape resonator. The misalignment sensitivities of the output power are given by means of matrix optics and the misalignment diffraction integral equation. The misalignment effects of the resonator having a variable aperture stop diameter on output power and beam quality have been measured by tilt -angle measurement technique at 200 Hz pump frequency, as well as the output power relationship with the misalignments of mirror S 1 and mirror S 2 at 300 Hz pump frequency. The experimental results show that the output power is a quadratic function of the tilt angle, the misalignment tolerance is directly proportional to mirror diameter and the beam quality factor decreases as the tilt angle increases.

A high power multi-pass diode-pumped solid-state MOPA system with large core diameter tapered quartz fiber as phase conjugator is experimentally investigated. The results of the effects of laser longitudinal mode characteristic, laser pulse width and fiber surface optical quality on SBS reflectivity are presented. Maximum SBS reflectivity of 69.7% is obtained with the repetition rate of 1000 Hz, input pulse energy of 38mJ and pulse width of 24 ns. The phase conjugator is made from a taper shaped quartz fiber with the diameter of 1mm at the input end and 0.4mm at the other end. It has good application prospects in improving the beam quality and compressing the pulse width for high power laser system with high repetition rate. © 2012 SPIE.

A large aperture fused silica tapered fiber phase conjugate mirror is presented with a maximum 70% stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS) reflectivity, which is obtained with 1 kHz repetition rate, 15 ns pulse width and 38 mJ input pulse energy. To the best of our knowledge, this is the highest SBS reflectivity ever reported by using optical fiber as a phase conjugate mirror for such high pulse repetition rate (1 kHz) and several tens of millijoule (mJ) input pulse energy. The influences of fiber end surface quality and pump pulse widths on SBS reflectivity are investigated experimentally. The results show that finer fiber end surface quality and longer input pulse widths are preferred for obtaining higher SBS reflectivity with higher input pulse energy. Double passing amplification experiments are also performed. 52 mJ pulse energy is achieved at 1 kHz repetition rate, with a reflected SBS pulse width of 1.5 ns and a M2 factor of 2.3. The corresponding peak power reaches 34.6 MW. Obvious beam quality improvement is observed. © 2012 Optical Society of America.

Silicon nanocomposites (nc-Si) with rare earth metals (REM) were synthesized by electron-beam evaporation. The structure of nanocomposites was studied by atomic-force microscopy. The size of nanocrystallites was about 10-40 nm. Also chemical composition of obtained material was examined. The distribution of rare earth elements (REE) was uniform in film thickness, but it was characterized by a presence of maximum peak at the interface film-substrate. In the work the electrical and optical properties of nanocomposites Si:REE were investigated. Silicon nanocomposites with Eu or Y were characterized by high sensitivity to visible radiation. The ratio of dark to light resistance was achieved to 2 orders of magnitude, making this material very promising to use in thin-film photosensors. After deposition of nanocomposites Si:REE on silicon substrate, the heterojunction was formed at the interface film-substrate, for which the sensitivity to visible radiation was observed too (1-2 mA/lmV). Also, the presence of photovoltaic effect in such structures was shown, so they can be the basis of cheap thin-film solar cells, using the relevant design solutions.
