Abstract:

THIS PROGRAM WILL INVESTIGATE CONTINUOUS-WAVE OPTICAL PARAMETRIC OSCILLATORS (OPOS) IN THE 1.5 TO 5 UM SPECTRAL RANGE AS TUNABLE SOURCES SUITABLE FOR COHERENT LASER RADAR. DIODE-PUMPED CW SINGLE-FREQUENCY ND:YAG LASERS OPERATING AT 1.064 UM WILL BE USED AS PUMP SOURCES. THE PHASE I EFFORT WILL CONSIDER POTASSIUM TITANYL PHOSPHATE (KTP) AND PERIODICALLY-POLED LITHIUM NIOBATE AS POSSIBLE MATERIALS FOR OPOS. PHASE I WILL INCLUDE EXPERIMENTAL DETERMINATION OF THE OPTICAL LOSSES OF KTP CRYSTALS NEAR 2 UM, MEASUREMENT OF THE PARAMETRIC GAIN FOR 2 UM LIGHT IN KTP USING A DIODE-PUMPED, HIGH POWER, CW SIGNLE-FREQUENCY 1.064 UM PUMP LASER AND DESIGN OF AN OPO USING KTP. PHASE I WILL ALSO ESTIMATE THE PERFORMANCE OF PERIODICALLY-POLED LITHIUM NIOBATE (REQUIRED PERIODICITY OF DOMAIN REVERSAL, PARAMETRIC GAIN, TUNABILITY) AS AN OPO IN THIS SPECTRAL REGION.
