Coherent Beam Combining with Gradient-Index Optics

W. Minster Kunkel, James R. Leger

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


We present a new method of coherent beam combining utilizing gradient index optics to convert multiple laser beams into a single beam. Both ray and wave theory are employed to design a highly efficient combiner.
