Power Scaling - MOPA
... of achieving power scalability is the "MOPA" (Master Oscillator Power Amplifier) approach ... The master oscillator produces a highly coherent beam, and an optical amplifier is used to increase the power of the beam while preserving its main properties ... The master oscillator has no need to be powerful, and has no need to operate at high efficiency because the efficiency is determined mainly by the power amplifier ...

Famous quotes containing the word master:

    The playing adult steps sideward into another reality; the playing child advances forward to new stages of mastery....Child’s play is the infantile form of the human ability to deal with experience by creating model situations and to master reality by experiment and planning.
