Abstract:

A SERIOUS THREAT EXISTS TO ORU ARMED FORCES FROM VARIOUS INFRARED SENSORS MOUNTED ON A VARIETY OF MILITARY PLATFORMS. THE SPECTRAL RANGES OF THE SENSORS ARE IN THE 3-5 AND 8-12 MICRON BANDS. THE PRIMARY THREAT HAS BEEN IN THE 3-5 MICRON BAND. THERE IS A CRITICAL NEED TO DEVELOP AN IR SOURCE TO COUNTER THIS THREAT. IF THE SOURCES WERE TUNABLE IT WOULD BE VIRTUALLY IMMUNE TO COUNTER-COUNTER MEASURES.THE OBJECTIVE OF OUR PROPOSED PROGRAM IS TO DEVELOP AN EXPECTIONALLY EFFICIENT LASER SOURCE THAT IS TUNABLE ACROSS THE 3-5 MICRON BAND. WE WILL INVESTIGTE DIODE PUMPED ER:YAG AS A LASER SOURCE AT 1.66 MICROMETERS. DURING THE COURSE OF THE PHASE II EFFORT THIS LASER SOURCE WILL BE SCALED UP TO HIGH AVERAGE POWERS AND USED AS A PUMP FOR AN OPO USING AGGASE(2).
