Abstract:

LIGHTWAVE IS PROPOSING TO STUDY TWO OF THE SUBSYSTEMS REQUIRED FOR HIGH PERFORMANCE COHERENT LASER RADAR. WE PROPOSE TO DEMONSTRATE ROOM-TEMPERATURE QUANTUM-LIMITED HETERODYNE DETECTION OF INFRARED RADIATION AT THE 2.1-MICRON WAVELENGTH OF TM:HO:YAG LASERS. THE LOCAL OSCILLATOR OF THE HETERODYNE DETECTOR WILL BE BUILT BY LIGHTWAVE, AND THE PHOTODIODE WILL BE PURCHASED FROM A COMMERCIAL SUPPLIER. WE WILL ALSO STUDY THE POSSIBILITY OF CONSTRUCTING A Q-SWITCHED COHERENT LASER TRANSMITTER WITH AN OUTPUT PULSE ENERGY OF 100 MJ AT THE SAME EYE-SAFE WAVELENGTH, USING COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE LASER DIODE PUMPS.
