High Power Mid-IR Laser Development 2.8 to 3.5 Microns

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Advance the state of the art in continuous wave and pulsed IR distributed feedback (DFB) and optical parametric generation (OPG) lasers between 2.8 and 3.5 μm to measure key atmospheric chemical species including OH, H2O, H218O, HDO, CH4, 13CH4, CO2, 13CO2, CH2O, C2H6.
Combine new lasers with integrated optics and electronics to enable the use of new single mode light sources aboard satellite and UAV platforms to support GACM and ASCENDS.
