Not Available Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation (AASC) proposes to develop and commercialize a low-cost, reliable, radiation hardened and rugged diamond laser profiler for near UV to x-ray radiation. This instrument can be inserted directly into a high power laser beam to measure the power distribution inside the beam with high spatial and temporal resolution. During Phase I AASC proposes a proof of principle demonstration with a 3 x 3 diamond array detector with 500 ¿m resolution. Two different detector designs will be tested: A detector array consisting of close packaging of discrete diamonds and a monolithic detector where one large diamond is subdivided into small pixels. During Phase II the system will be scaled up to a larger numbers of pixels and a prototype will be developed with an automated computer controlled readout that allows the display of the beam profile as an image. With additional calibration these detector arrays can also work as laser power meters. Examples of applications in which the shape of the beam profile is important range from laser based weapons and sophisticated plasma diagnostics to laser cutting of metals. The diamond laser profiler will be a key enabling technology in these areas
