Efficient Tm-Fiber-Pumped Ho:YLF Laser System for Coherent LIDAR Applications, Phase II

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Efficient Tm-Fiber-Pumped Ho:YLF Laser System for Coherent LIDAR Applications, Phase II
The primary objective of the proposed Phase II program is to develop and deliver a ruggedized, compact single-frequency 2050-nm-laser system suitable for coherent LIDAR applications. Such a system uses the latest Tm:silica heavily-doped fiber technology to provide as much as 3X efficiency improvement over existing systems. An all-amplifier technology provides flexibility and stability in the generation of coherent lidar waveforms. The hybrid fiber/bulk amplifier scheme allows to combine the advantage of high small-signal gain attainable in a fiber amplifier with the advantages of a bulk crystal amplifier such as high storage efficiency, immunity to various non-linear processes and damage-free operation for pulse generation.
