Abstract:

THIS PROJECT WILL DEVELOP A SMALL, LIGHTWEIGHT, EXTERNAL MODULATOR THAT CAN IMPRESS EITHER PHASE OR AMPLITUDE MODULATION ON A ND:YAG LASER OUTPUT. THE MODULATOR WILL TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE VERY STABLE, ELECTRONICALLY TUNABLE, SINGLE-FREQUENCY OUTPUT OF THE DIODE-PUMPED ND:YAG NONPLANARRING OSCILLATORS BY USING RESONANCE-ENHANCEMENT PROPERTIES TO REDUCE THE MODULATION VOLTAGE REQUIREMENTS. IT WILL BE CAPABLE OF HANDLING AN AVERAGE OPTICAL POWER IN EXCESS OF 1 WATT AT MODULATION FREQUENCIES FROM 100 KHZ TO OVER 1 GHZ WITH NEGLIGIBLE INSERTION LOSS.
