Abstract:

IN THE PROPOSED RESEARCH LIGHTWAVE ELECTRONICS CORPORATION WILL DEVELOP HIGHLY COHERENT DIODE-PUMPED LASERS OPERATING AT THE EYE-SAFE WAVELENGTH OF 2.1 MICRONS. THE MOST PROMISING CLASS OF SOLID-STATE LASER MATERIALS MEETING THE REQUIREMENTS FOR BOTH DIODE-PUMPING AND EYE SAFETY ARE THE THULIUM:HOLMIUM:GARNETS, WHICH CAN BE PUMPED AT 0.78 MICRONS AND LASE AT 2.1 MICRONS. THESE MATERIALS HAVE A VERY LONG ENERGY STORAGE TIME OF 10 MSEC AND HAVE A THEORETICAL ENERGY EFFICIENCY OF 75%. IN PHASE I WE WILL DESIGN AND BUILD A DIODEPUMPED TM:HO;GARNET SINGLE-MODE OSCILLATOR USING THE ULTRA-STABLE MONOLITHIC RING GEOMETRY, AND DESIGN A DIODE-PUMPED PULSED AMPLIFIER. IN PHASE II WE WILL BUILD A DIODE-PUMPED AMPLIFIER USING THE SAME MATERIALS.
