Compact, Ultra- Narrow-Bandwidth, High-Power Diode Laser Pumps for Diode-Pumped Alkali Lasers

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Bien Chann, Chief Technical Officer – (978) 952-2501
Award Amount: $99,928.00
Abstract:
The diode pumped alkali laser (DPAL) allows for a potentially scalable approach towards a MW-class high energy laser system. By using an alkali vapor gain medium, one overcomes the intrinsic thermo-optical limitations of more conventional diode-pumped solid state laser (DPSSL) media. High spectral… More
