Abstract:

The Phase I goal is to build energy-efficient, compact femtosecond optical sources, and demonstrate diode-pumped lasers that can generate femtosecond pulses via self-modelocking. Only readily available 750-nm diode lasers will be used as pump source. Existing subpicosecond sources are complex devices requiring large, heavy, power-inefficient Argon-ion lasers, Nd:YAG, or similar lasers as primary pump sources. There is an existing need for compact ultrafast sources that can be used outside the R&D laboratory setting. Our compact sources will be used for: 3D acquisition; collision avoidance; imaging scattering media (including tomography of the human body); electronic devices testing (electro-optical sampling); and high-power switching.
