780 nm Single-frequency Laser Source for High Spectral Resolution Lidar, Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

High energy narrow-linewidth and frequency stable laser transmitter at 780 nm is in great demand for the development of low-cost, compact, and eye-safe high spectral resolution lidar (HSRL) for accurate aerosol and cloud profiling and distinguishing among different aerosol types. NP Photonics proposes to develop a 780 nm laser source capable of generating 20 mJ nanosecond pulses at a repetition rate of 10 kHz with wavelength tunability > 0.5 nm by use of our proprietary and mature highly doped short-length fiber amplifier technology and innovative Innoslab amplifier technology. The advantages of our proposed laser system include high reliability, narrow-linewidth, super stability, high spectral purity, robustness and compactness. More »
