Title: 2 kW, Compact, Ultra-Narrow-Bandwidth, High-Power Diode Laser Pumps for Diode-Pumped Alkali Lasers
Agency: DOD
Contract: HQ0147-13-C-7141
Award Amount: $981,806.00
 

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 brightness diode pump sources are proposed by TeraDiode as the enabling element for efficient, kW-class DPAL systems. In Phase 1 of this program, we developed a Watt-class, compact, extremely narrow-bandwidth (sub-GHz bandwidth), diode laser pump for DPALs. In Phase 2 of this program, we will produce a 2-kW, compact, extremely narrow bandwidth (sub-GHz bandwidth) pump for DPAL lasers
