|Abstract:||According to the theorem proposed herein, if we put a phase-matched plate at the near-field of CO2 laser array, it can restrain the far-field off-axis lobes output energy of laser beam. In addition, we use the parameter M2x to evaluate the laser beam quality. In this paper, when a phase-matched plate is used to near-field, energy can centralize to 92.92%, and the beam quality M2x of far-field is 5.63. The phase-matched plate not only can centralize energy more efficiently but also can improve the beam quality quite substantially.|
