Abstract:

We propose to develop a power scalable, multi-spectral, fiber laser source, capable of simultaneous laser ourput in the mid-IR (2-5um) atmospheric propagation bands of interest. The fiber laser is based on non-silica oxide fibers being developed by Fibertek and its partners, and is optimized for both low loss in the mid-IR region, as well as for high non-linearity. This all-fiber architecture with multi-spectral laser output is enabled by directly writing multiple fiber Bragg gratings (FBG) in such mid-IR fibers, via femtosecond laser micromachining. Such mid-IR fiber laser sources will enable next generation IRCM countermeasures, both in laser source functionality, as well as enable distributed, conformal architecture of interest for various tactical aircraft platforms.
