Abstract:

We carry out a theoretical and experimental study of the possibilities for using a PC mirror to compensate for distortions of pulsed-periodic laser radiation in moving media due to thermal blooming. We show that the accuracy with which such distortions can be corrected decreases as the characteristic amount of thermal blooming decreases, while the pulse-to-pulse scatter in the values of the parameter for the correction accuracy at a given average radiation power increases as the pulse repetition rate increases.
