## Main Question or Discussion Point

As of this point. I understand the following.

1. there is almost 90% loss when applied to a laser system. 100 watts in 10 watt beam out.

2. when a beam is split there is also a loss, (amount unknown)

3. if you take a 20 watt beam and (with not loss) split it in two and cross the beams. The effects to not stack as the wave is the same in both.

if i took a beam and split it in 3 equal parts. (so that they all had 10 watts) and ran 2 of them back in to two different active medium chambers to be re-excited then cross the 3 beams red green and blue would they then stack?

(assuming you can re-excited a beam)
