We demonstrate a method for wavefront distribution compensation with a low-cost small-aperture deformable mirror in the front stage of a complex high-power solid-state laser system. Meanwhile, an iterative algorithm for improving wavefront quality is indicated. Using this method, the wavefront compensation was studied in our single-shot high-power laser system that operated with and without the main amplifiers, respectively. The wavefront was compensated effectively, showing the near-flopped-shape output with the peak-to-valley value of 0.29 λ and root meam square (RMS) of 0.06 λ at 1053 nm. View Full-Text
