Center Independent Research & Development: GSFC IRAD

Laser Source for LiDAR Instrument (GSFC IRAD)

Active Technology Project

Project Introduction

This IRAD project continues the work begun under an FY2017 IRAD award for a laser source based on photonic crystal.   Successfully developing key subsystems will be a critical step toward a viable LiDAR instrument that would provide the ability to obtain signatures of numerous species.

For this FY2018, we propose to continue work on the laser source.
