Title: Energy Scaling of Ultrashort Pulse (USP) High Energy Fiber Lasers Through Temporal Control

Contract: N00164-11-C-BT05
Award Amount: $750,000.00
 

Abstract:

Phase Tailoring represents a unique and novel approach to significantly driving up pulse energies in all-fiber ultrafast laser systems. One of the challenges of working in the ultrafast regime is that the amplification and compression part of the chirped pulse amplification scheme can cause a variety of effects that will damage pulse quality and must be accounted for, such as B-integral, SOP and others. Phase Tailoring enables pre-compensation for these undesirable qualities, and as a result, enables greater pulse amplification for fiber and hybrid amplifier technologies. Under this Phase II program, a fully integrated software control Phase Tailoring system will be developed. The system will be demonstrated in a benchtop environment, and ultimately packaged and integrated into a packaged, millijoule pulse energy fiber ultrafast laser at the 1.55 micron wavelength.
