Fiber Coupled Pulse Shaper for Sub-Nanosecond Pulse Lidar

Completed Technology Project

Project Description

Fiber Coupled Pulse Shaper for Sub-Nanosecond Pulse Lidar
This Small Business Innovation Research Phase II effort will develop an all-diode laser and fiber optic based, single frequency, sub-nanosecond pulsed laser source for high resolution lidar applications benefiting SLR, LIST and DESDynI missions. This laser will have a user adjustable pulse width from 2ns to 400ps and will be ideal for seeding high power fiber amplifiers for short pulse, high resolution lidar transmitters. The highest utility of the proposed sub-nanosecond pulsed laser is simultaneously achieving narrow linewidth AND narrow pulse widths that can be set by the user for lidar instruments with <10cm vertical resolution.
