Abstract

The formation of nonlinear holographic images behind a multislab amplifier is studied. The analytical expressions describing magnitudes and locations of intensity maxima depending on the corresponding image number are derived. Comparison with numerical calculations results is given. On the basis of numerical modeling, analysis of gain saturation, slab thickness, and slab aberrations influence is carried out.
