Iodine Stabilized Seed Laser for Space Applications

Completed Technology Project

Project Description

Iodine Stabilized Seed Laser for Space Applications
The overall goal of this SBIR effort is development of a space qualifiable, compact, frequency stabilized seed laser with low SWaP for routine use in NASA LaRC's High Spectral Resolution Lidar (HSRL) flight-based and future space-based systems. In addition to refining process parameters to optimize performance, a major goal of the Phase II effort is risk mitigation through accelerated life testing and environmental component level testing to advance this highly efficient, waveguide-based Seed Laser System to TRL 6. 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.
