Optical Fibers for High-Power, Mid-Infrared Laser Diodes Emitting in the 2.0 Micron to 5.0 Micron Wavelength Range
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
Currently, mid-infrared lasers must be integrated into highly restrictive volumes near the outer surfaces of air platforms. Fiber coupling of mid-infrared lasers would enhance the tactical utility for such devices by enabling the laser to be remotely located from the pointer-tracker. The proposed work will demonstrate the efficient fiber coupling of a mid-infrared semiconductor laser in a low loss, low divergence, fiber optic consistent with typical IRCM system performance needs.
