Title: Apparatus and method for improving radiation coherence and reducing beam emittance

Abstract

This invention is comprised of a method and apparatus for increasing the coherence and reducing the emittance of a beam-shaped pulse which operates by splitting the pulse into multiple sub-beams, delaying the propagation of the various sub-beams by varying amounts, and then recombining the sub-beams by means of a rotating optical element to form a pulse of longer duration with improved transverse coherence. 16 figs.
