The results achieved in a highly non-steady-state regime of stimulated Brillouin scattering with an iodine laser beam are presented. The input energy dependencies of beam divergence and reflected energy were obtained in one-lens and two-lens systems of beam insertion. In both cases the correction of the optical distortion of a launched beam wave front is attainable only for input energies lower than twice that of the threshold.
