Compact Fiber Lasers for Coherent LIDAR, Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Description

Compact Fiber Lasers for Coherent LIDAR, Phase I
This is a proposal to investigate the feasibility of developing a low cost, compact, lightweight, high power (>500m W) and narrow linewidth 1.5 and 1.06 micron fiber lasers based on a "virtual ring" laser cavity. We have already demonstrated "virtual ring" laser prototypes at 1.5 micron that push the performance envelope to unprecedented levels in a number of important parameters but with powers below 40 mW. In this research will increase the laser oscillator power to (>100 mw) and also boost it with a MOPA section. We will also investigate the feasibility of exending the virtual ring technology to the 1.06 micron band. More »
