Abstract

The single frequency dithering technique for coherent beam combination with one single modulation frequency and without a reference beam is presented for the first time to our knowledge. Coherent beam combination of four fiber amplifiers is successfully demonstrated by using the single-dithering technique. When the phase control system is in the closed loop, the fringe contrast of far-field intensity pattern is improved by more than 85% from 8% in open loop, and the residual phase error is less than λ / 20 . Experimental results reveal that the single-dithering technique has great potential in scaling to a large number of beamlets with a simple phase control system and low cost.
