High-Efficiency, High-Temperature Laser Diodes for Naval High-Energy Laser Applications
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
The Navy is interested in developing high temperature and high operation efficiency pumps for fiber lasers. VCSEL technology offers an excellent choice for the development of high efficiency, high temperature pumps. Princeton Optronics has developed high power VCSEL arrays delivering hundreds of watts of power from small chips and has developed high brightness arrays for fiber laser pumping. We propose an approach in which we are able to improve the operating temperature and efficiency of the VCSELs to the levels required in this solicitation and package them in low cost package to meet the cost objectives of the program. In phase I, we would demonstrate the feasibility of the approach and in phase II we would deliver>50W arrays with operating temperature of>70 deg C and an efficiency of>70% at that temperature.
