Iodine Stabilized Seed Laser for Space Applications

Completed Technology Project

Project Description

Iodine Stabilized Seed Laser for Space Applications
This SBIR Phase I effort proposes to establish the feasibility of leveraging advances in compact laser technology with integration of space qualified techniques into AdvR's Planar Lightwave Circuit (PLC) and iodine reference cell technology for the design of a space qualifiable, frequency stabilized seed laser system in support of NASA Langley's High Spectral Resolution Lidar (HSRL) program. The Phase II effort will focus on space qualifiable systems integration, packaging, and testing of the locked seed laser system under applicable environmental conditions. Successful development of this technology, due to its compact, efficient, and reliable design, will enable further uses of the HSRL-based remote sensing system both in current flight-based systems and in future space-based systems.
