    Experimental results of the implementation of our concept of neutral gain modules (NGM) in high-power thin-disk lasers are presented. To demonstrate power scalability and high brightness, series of NGMs comprising up to four Yb:YAG thin-disk laser modules have been integrated in various ways...

    Time-reversal symmetry is important to optics. Optical processes can run in a forward or backward direction through time when such symmetry is preserved. In linear optics, a time-reversed process of laser emission can enable total absorption of coherent light fields inside an optical cavity of...

    The authors develop a self-consistent thermodynamic theory to compute the critical electric field at which maximum tunability is attained in a nonlinear dielectric. They then demonstrate that the stored electrostatic free energy functional has to be expanded at least up to the sixth order in...
