Abstract:

THIS SBIR PROPOSES TWO INNOVATIVES LASER HEAD DESIGNS, BASED ON WAVEGUIDE ANMD ZIG-ZAG OPTICAL CAVITIES, FOR ARMY FLASHLAMP-PUMPED DYE LASER SYSTEMS. THESE DESIGNS WILL SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCE THE DELITERIOUS EFFECTS OF REFRACTIVE INDEX CHANGES DUE TO DYE SOLVENT HEATING. ANALYSES INDICATE THAT 50% INCREASES IN LASER EFFICIENCY, NEAR-DIFFRACTION-LIMITED OPTICAL BEAMS, FACTORS OF TWO INCREASES IN LASER POWER AND SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCE DYE FLOW REQUIREMENTS CAN BE ACHIEVED. AN ANALYTICAL COMPARISON OF THE TWO DESIGNS WILL BE MADE IN PHASE I, LEADING TO AN ENGINEERING DESIGN FOR A SINGLE PROTOTYPE HEAD DESIGN FOR PHASE II IMPLEMENTATION.
