Title: A high-speed, high-efficiency phase controller for coherent beam combining based on SPGD algorithm

A phase controller for coherent beam combining (CBC) of fibre lasers has been designed and manufactured based on a stochastic parallel gradient descent (SPGD) algorithm and a field programmable gate array (FPGA). The theoretical analysis shows that the iteration rate is higher than 1.9 MHz, and the average compensation bandwidth of CBC for 5 or 20 channels is 50 kHz or 12.5 kHz, respectively. The tests show that the phase controller ensures reliable phase locking of lasers: When the phases of five lasers are locked by the improved control strategy with a variable gain, the energy encircled in the target is increased by 23 times than that in the single output, the phase control accuracy is better than λ/20, and the combining efficiency is 92%.
