|Abstract:||The coherence length of a Nd:YAG laser with an intra-cavity SBS cell has been investigated interferometrically. It is shown that the coherence length decreases with increasing output pulse energy, and is limited by the pulse width when the pulse energy is much higher than the lasing threshold. Coherence lengths as short as 16 mm have been measured for pulse widths of 50 ns and energies ≥20 mJ.|
