1570 nm High Energy Fiber Laser

Completed Technology Project

Project Description

1570 nm High Energy Fiber Laser
This SBIR phase I project proposes a single frequency high energy fiber laser for remote sensing. Current state-of-art technologies can not provide all features of high energy and efficiency, compactness, and narrow spectral width. PolarOnyx proposes, for the first time, a high energy (10 mJ) fiber amplifier to meet with the requirement of solicitation. This proposal is based on the sub-mJ fiber laser at 1570 nm we have achieved in our labs. In the high power amplifier stage, PolarOnyx proposes an innovative fiber amplifier approach that will be able to operate at pulse repetition rate (5 kHz to 20 kHz) and reach high energy level of 2-10 mJ. These will make the fiber laser transmitter system superior in terms of wall plug efficiency, energy, noise, size, and cost. A tabletop experiment will be demonstrated in Phase I time frame for proof of concept. A compact prototype will be delivered in Phase II. More »
