Abstract:

Not Available The goal of this Phase I program is to design and demonstrate an ultra-stable single-frequency diode-pumped solid-state laser operating at <1030 nm. We propose to use Ytterbium (Yb) doped YAG and/or YLF as the laser gain medium. Unidirectional ring architecture allows single-frequency operation. A quasi-monolithic cavity design assures stable operation, while allowing use of the quasi-three-level Yb gain medium. The proposed architecture is suitable for both Yb:YAG and Yb:YLF, as well as for other laser gain media - thus, this program will provide an enabling technology for single-frequency lasers at a variety of wavelengths. Ytterbium-based single-frequency lasers have several advantages over Neodymium-based solid-state lasers. In particular, Yb offers more than an order of magnitude greater tunability, access to shorter wavelengths, and greater electrical-to-optical efficiency.
