Abstract:

Current infrared countermeasure (IRCM) systems are limited by the size and weight of their jamming transmitter. Laser systems based on nonlinear conversion are intrinsically large and inefficient compared to diode lasers. For current, as well as future, countermeasure systems, mid-infrared diode lasers need to be produced which can satisfy the power needs for IRCM while minimizing the system size and weight. A major hurdle in developing diode lasers for this application has been the realization of high power operation near room temperature. The goal of this project is to investigate power scaling options for the quantum cascade laser suitable for multi-Watt delivery in a high-quality beam.
