Abstract:

The goal of this program is to develop compact, reliable lasers producing intense (millijoule) femtosecond pulses at high repetition rates. These lasers will be designed to operate in industrial environments and will be ideally suited for non-linear optical diagnostics. During the Phase I we will demonstrate that diode-pumped fiber lasers can generate reliably ultrashort pulses, and that their output can be amplified after frequency doubling in various solid state gain media. During the Phase II we will demonstrate that the solid-state amplifier(s) can be efficiently pumped by light emitting diodes (NOT laser diodes). The combination of the fiber oscillator and the LED-pumped amplifier will form a powerful, compact, and reliable system of energetic femtosecond pulses. Our program goals will be reached in collaboration with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Prof. E. Ippen) and the University of Rochester (Prof. I. Walmsley).
