20 W High Efficiency 1550 nm Pulsed Fiber Laser

Completed Technology Project

Project Description

20 W High Efficiency 1550 nm Pulsed Fiber Laser
High efficiency pulsed lasers have been considered to be an enabling technology to build high power transmitters for future deep space high rate space communications. However, to achieve a high peak power at a high repetition rate and with a short pulse width and >25% wall plug efficiency still remains an issue unsolved. PolarOnyx proposes a novel approach targeting to make 20W high power fiber laser at 1550 nm and resolve the issues of efficiency. A tabletop feasibility demonstration has been carried out at the end of Phase I. A prototype will be delivered at the end of Phase II. More »
